I currently live in Lancaster, PA, a small but lively city in the heart of Amish country. We grow some of the best produce in the country here!
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love to try new recipes, especially ethnic recipes. There are a lot of Puerto Rican folks in Lancaster and lately I am trying my hand at Puerto Rican cookery.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Meat and potatoes, good solid German and/or Scots-Irish cooking traditions (my background).
My cooking triumphs
I make a really great macaroni and cheese that everyone likes!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list... they have been legion!
The worst was my trying to make a "Sachertorte" that was really awful.
