Native Coloradoan, Irish descent. Retired medical transcriptionist. Four children 4-1/2 grandchildren. Love to cook in the outdoors.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food, Mexican, Italian, Middle Eastern, French country.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my husband and teaching our children to cook when they were very young (and we were successful!).
My cooking triumphs
Winter short rubs. Succulent and full of the things that define comfort food; roasted root vegetables, my special seasonings and Madeira wine served over homemade noodles.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt sugar cake. Always comes out capable of being used for a boat anchor! (This used to be my husband's favorite until I managed to ruin it forever).
