I'm a free-spirited person who's creative, positive, and loves the outdoors. I spend most of my time in my garden or in the kitchen where I belong! I LOVE to cook for everyone dear to me. I believe food (and wine :) ) is the root of all happy families and friendships.
I'm pretty sure, instead of blood, a mixture of olive oil, basil and parmesan cheese runs through my veins
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian - I am all German, but I must have been Italian in a past life because I'm fascinated by Italy and it's culture.
I also love experimenting with Mexican food; it's so robust and flavorful and gets the blood pumping! Also tastes great with beer :)
Breakfast. Somehow my Wok is the best thing on earth for breakfast anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home-made chicken pot pie, sauerkraut and scrapple with apple butter. Oh, it just brings back all those warm and gushy feelings.
My cooking triumphs
The days when experiments turn into wonderful things .. you stand back and think, Man! I totally just made that from scratch!
My cooking tragedies
Home-made mac and cheese, what the hell! I am so frustrated with you.
