My cooking interests changed to mostly Italian and Mexican dishes. Grilling and slow-cooking are fun ways to enjoy the flavors I dish up for my kids. When I am not around a heat source cooking up something tastie, I hope I'm on the golf course.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything I can add cumin,avacado, and/or cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pizzas after midnight from scratch with my brother, or Saturday pasta making day with the family.
My cooking triumphs
Way back in the day (circa 1987), I cooked a four-course dinner for my husband, using a broken oven/stove and my microwave; in our kitchen that was smaller than most "1/4 baths" in peoples homes.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot cook rice to save my soul. Not in a pot, not in a pan, not in a steamer, not anyway. Thank you Uncle Ben's 90 second microwave rice! Without you, my dishes would be incomplete.
