I am 31 years old living in VT with the love of my life. We have a 5 month Husky Suki who keeps us busy and Jax the Coon cat. I spend the little free time I have outside(when weather permits)taking photos of nature. I love reading when I can and love browsing through cookbooks to find new recipes to try.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookie, candies, and trying Italian recipes. I also love looking through new cookbooks looking for new recipes and trying my twists, flavors and favorite ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother at Christmas time used to make the best brandy balls, but I was always limited to 2 balls. I have tried in the past to make them like hers, but it is still not right. I might try again this year.
My cooking triumphs
I was so proud of myself when I first made risotto. The recipes, the length and attention that it needed had intimidated me. One Sunday I decided I would give the basic recipe a try and it was marvelous. My man loved it.
My cooking tragedies
The one thing that I seem to always have trouble with is FUDGE. It comes out soupy and never forms. One year I went through three batches before one came out edible.
