What can I say about myself? People describe me as a shopaholic, "gym rat", bookworm, spiritual and cultured who's happily married and passionate about life, traveling, animals, and the finer things in life which include food!! Also love trying out different restaurants, and trying new things in general. Variety is the spice of life!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything from seafood, steamed mussels, Thai food, enchilladas, deserts, anything ethnic.
I really hate making anything bland and dodgy, or even fried for that matter as I don't feel well after consuming fried foods. Prefer to eat healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ooh there are too many to list but here goes: anything from my Mom's plum dumplings, sarma, djuvech, cevapcici, also pasta with poppy seeds, stuffed peppers, making streudel, crepes, potica for Christmas. Also we always look forward to dinners at Mom's place, because we're all such "gourmands" and it's great cooking up fabulous dishes while spending time with your loved ones.
My cooking triumphs
Making everything from Salmon Wellington, a crepe cake, amazing Thai food, pasta's with cream sauces, etc. I've never been accused of making bland food and usually my cooking has a bit of a "kick" to it.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to list. Well, once I attempted to make scones, however they turned out to be hockey pucks. I think everyone has burnt meat some time in their life and I'm no exception.
