My favorite things to cook
Italian, seafood, any delicious dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Apple crisp, date squares, homemade raspberry jam. Christmas turkey and ham dinner with shortbread, plum pudding for dessert! Thanksgiving turkey dinner with pumpkin and lemon meringue pie and apple crisp for dessert....omg I'm drooling. Homemade and decorated birthday cakes; gingerbread houses at Christmas
My cooking triumphs
Gingerbread houses totally from scratch; white and whole wheat bread; chocolate cheesecake, pies, my family calls me mini Martha but really I just read carefully and pay attention!
My cooking tragedies
over done strip loin steaks that cost $20 each! A chicken/broccoli casserole that had way too much dijon and lemon....ugh.
