I am a small town cook at a little restaurant and bar called the Oasis. I have been working there ten years now and am always searching for new things to try out there. I am also a wife and mom. I have four children who are as much a blessing as they are a job.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have the patience for baking but I am getting there. I love warm and hearty comfort foods. Soups of all kinds are my specialties.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I didn't grow up with anyone teaching me how to cook so I consider myself a trial and error kind of learner. My kids get in the kitchen with my though and we try out all sorts of things.
My cooking triumphs
I love my home made breads. Of course I cheat with my bread machine but you still get that first bite, warm out of the oven, melt in your mouth taste.
My cooking tragedies
Before I learned you can keep pasta in cold water I kept it heated in the sauce and it came out a mushed mess of gloppiness.
