I am a transplant to Alpine Utah. I train horses and people :-) I have been cooking for my whole life and will welcome you into my home with some kind of treat that I've made. As my husband says, he's twice the man I met... :)
My favorite things to cook
Food my family loves. There's nothing more annoying than wasting calories on a dissatisfying meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite traditions include cooking family recipes for Goulash, Sauerbraten, Red Cabbage, Spaetzle, Chibabchichi (a grilled beef and pork meatball from Yugoslavia)and, most especially, having Iron Chef competitions with my kids (my 15 y/o owns in the cookie and brownie departments!)
My cooking triumphs
I have many triumphs. First, anytime my family likes my food, I am triumphant. Secondly, I successfully cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner at the age of twelve. Third, I made a surprise three course dinner for my parents of Chateaubriand, roasted vegetables and Daiquiri Souffle at the age of 14. Fourth,I successfully completed a three layered, fondant covered wedding cake in the middle of August with 100 degree weather and insufficient air conditioning. Finally, I created a rocket birthday cake for my son's birthday. My design, my plan, my execution... awesome! Who knew metal mixing bowls make such great cake pans?!?!?!?
My cooking tragedies
Angel Food Cake... It eludes me :-(
