I live in the Chicago-area with my husband, two sons, and younger sister. I used to work "in the biz", but now I'm a SAHM. Everyone thinks we eat all this great food all the time, but quite often, it's the opposite. I'm always trying and making up new recipes, and they're not always good!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups and stews, good old American-regional type favorites (one of my favorite foods is meatloaf!), Italian, Tex-Mex, and anything that sounds a little different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family was crazy, crazy, crazy, but we sat down to dinner together almost every night. I hope to do the same for my children.
My cooking triumphs
I graduated from the CIA in 1999.
My cooking tragedies
My family still makes fun of me for trying something called "Hamburgers in a Nest" before I left for school. It was toast stuffed into muffin tins, filled with some really horrible meatloaf-type mixture. Live and learn!
