I'm a busy mom and business executive -- both being full-time jobs. Cooking is my "down time" and I've been busy in the kitchen experimenting since about 7 years old!
My favorite things to cook
Over the years, I've found that the simpler a recipe the better. Let the foods and ingredients play off each other instead of trying to add so many ingredients that the individual tastes get lost.
Beyond that, I like to try everything and anything new and exciting be it new ingredients, food styles and/or cooking methods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are a Native American family and have several authentic Iroquois recipes including frybread and beans, corn soup, and "real" corn bread.
