I am a 45-year-old homemaker and buisness partner in my husband's gardening business. We both love food and I love cooking for him. He is very easy to please but I am the adventurous one - eager to try something new and experiment with various types of food and food ideas!
My favorite things to cook
I don't know that I really have a favorite thing to cook. Although I do have a favorite food - veggies! I simply enjoy cooking and presenting food to please the taste and the eye.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! By far, this is my favorite time of the year in that is when the family was usually all together no matter where we might be living. And I am ALWAYS looking for new recipes and ideas to make it special.
My cooking triumphs
Irish dinner - My husband is Welsh. I am Irish. He has always teased me about being Irish but I do not know much about the Irish culture - being born in the US and no real connection to the Irish heritage. I researched music and food and had an Irish dinner with my husband - which he dearly loved and has never forgotten!
My cooking tragedies
BBQ Rotissery chicken. Not much experience in rotissery chicken on the grill. My first experience ended up with the bird on the grill and flames shooting up 3 feet above it and my daughter looking at me in such fright that all she could get out was "the chicken is on fire!"
