I grew up in a family where cooking was important - one set of grandparents owned a cafe, the other grandmother was a fantastic cook & hostess and my mom was a wicked good baker. I ran from cooking as hard and fast as I could.
Then I met my husband - who is a superb cook. He grew up with…
I'm married, with 2 dogs and one cat, living in an urban area, work full time and am an active volunteer at a nursing home, my church and various theatres in town. I also am an actor who is onstage quite frequently.
My favorite things to cook
anything for dinner that will make my husband happy; I love playing with salads & appetizers. Soup is my focus now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my maternal grandparents owned a restaurant and my paternal grandmother was an incredible cook...I can't keep up with any of them.
My cooking triumphs
cooking dishes that actually have more than 4 ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
I try to put both the failures & memories in the trash.
