I thoroughly enjoy cooking challenging meals for family gatherings and large groups. I struggle with sharing the responsiblity of the cooking with others because I love to do it all! To have a perfect meal including dessert turn out fabulous is so satisfying to me.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make organic Italian sauces from my home grown tomatoes and herbs. I try to cook with low fat ingredients whenever possible, but I won't skimp on the butter and cheeses when they take a recipe to a higher level of excellence.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Homemade turkey noodle soup after Thanksgiving dinner.
Spaghetti sauce made with my home grown tomatoes and herbs.
