I am a mom of 4, a wife, and a nurse. I come from a long line of good cooks. It wasn't until my 30's that I really started to love cooking. I could spend hours in the kitchen! I love planning menus for our parties, holidays, and everyday living. I enjoy trying new ideas, as well as incorporating my own touch to each recipe I make. One thing I always do while cooking is cleaning up as I go along.
My favorite things to cook
One of my favorite things to make is bread. I just love the way the dough feels on my hands when it becomes perfect! I also love to BBQ. My husband loves the fact I do all the grilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family has many recipes we prepare for holidays, that are always a tradition. Having a glass of wine while preparing dinner is one of my favorite traditions :)
My cooking triumphs
For me learning that timing is key for everything to be ready at mealtime was my main triumph.
My cooking tragedies
In my early years of cooking, I had Christmas dinner. The main course was meatballs. I didn't cook them thoroughly as my grandfather pointed out. So side dishes went cold while the meatballs cooked. Very embarrassing.
