My husband and I live six months in Florida and six months in Minnesota. We love to entertain and therefore, I'm always looking for fabulous new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to be in the kitchen, so whether it's cooking or baking, I'm happy. My husband and I are vegetarians, so I stay away from any meat dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking and baking were very big in my family growing up. My mom, grandmothers and aunts were all very skilled in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I feel that each year I'm becoming a better cook. I am very comfortable with trying almost anything. When I look back years ago, I was intimidated to try difficult recipes.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a number of times when I spent hours on something and it failed. Either the sauce didn't thicken as it said it would or the cookies were a failure. It ends up in the trash and I live and learn.
