I've been cooking since I was 8. It has always been a creative stress reliever for me. I love entertaining, and I love seeing someone's face when they experience my food. It is so rewarding!!
My favorite things to cook
There is often a lot of soup in our house, especially in the cold months. We love authentic international foods- you'll see a lot of German, Japanese, Mexican, and Mediterranean food around.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Who doesn't love Thanksgiving? Food from past generations is lovingly re-created, as well as new foods to pass on to our kids. It can't get any more family than that!
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving, where I was solely responsible was pretty exhilarating! I am pretty proud of my homemade fettuccine alfredo with handmade pasta and vodka sauce!
My cooking tragedies
Once I completely burned my chili- so I added sour cream to ease the burned taste. It ended up being so tasty, that now liquid smoke and sour cream have been added to our chili recipe!
