I started out cooking from a box or a can because I thought it was quick. It didn't take me long to learn that home cook foods can also be quick and are much healthier. Recently I've turned to organic foods for an even better tasting twist.
My favorite things to cook
The more variety the better. I love to experiment with foods from all different cultures. Because my husband is from Germany, German and Turkish foods are my specialties, with Greek and Italian tying for third.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Celebrating holidays with family is extra special. I enjoy hosting & then inviting everyone to provide a recipe to include in the meals. Once younger family members age & have new recipes of their own, I include them.
My cooking triumphs
I've created a few of my own recipes and my family and guests rave when I make them. They are my easiest recipes, yet everyone loves them.
My cooking tragedies
Upon moving to Germany I managed to destroy several attempts at banana bread before finally learning how to translate US measurements for metric.
