Hello All, I am a kitchen loving momma with a passion for all things culinary. I am a self-taught cook eager to try new things ... even if that means a few unappetizing meals. I specificially love to bake and make breads and doughs. From pizza dough, I will never order out again, to pie crust to sweet treats, I love the whole process.
My favorite things to cook
Pizza, Chinese and Indian Cusine and
anything fun and quirky
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a rich collection of holiday recipes. I love celebrating the holiday season with my grandmother's, mother-in-law's and the many traditional recipes I've collected over the year.
My cooking triumphs
The perfect pizza dough!
My cooking tragedies
I have made a many "barrel cake." Barrel cakes are what my grandmother calls anything that ends up in the trash. One of the best tragedies of my culinary practice was when I was a young girl ... maybe nine. And I made homemade New England clam chowder for my father. Thing was I read the recipe as saying ... one Tablespoon ... when in fact it said one teaspoon. The end result was a salty mess. I will never forget my dad's face. I think he said something to the effect of "Whewwwwww!"
