first visit to seattle and it is my new favorite "big city."  the people are interesting and as a whole, so much more outgoing than in some of the other cities i've visited.  the city feels open and clean and there is still lots of green.  i know it helps that we were treated to some of the few sunny days in seattle, and that my visit was highlighted by the time at allrecipes international headquarters.  i was determined to "live it up" on a foodie adventure, packing in every tasting good friends recommended.  i'll be posting more soon, but my goal is to spend some time re-imagining some of my favorite seattle meals for my family here in florida.  in the mean-time, enjoy a sneak peek... click here to view a slideshow over at my personal blog!

I just love the way you put those photos together. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, those pictures told me a story about the wonderful and beautiful Seattle. I'm so glad you had the opportunity to go and I'm thankful you shared the "story" of your time there with us. Beautiful!

About Me
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!
