It's that time of year again for me. Wedding tasting with my bride and grooms. So far this year I have 12 weddings to look forward to. I have a wedding tasting tomorrow for a couple who is getting married in October. I enjoy my tastings because it
allows me to meet my couples getting…
I love everything about cooking! I love the fact that what I cook can make somebody else happy. It's the most rewarding thing I can do for somebody. I truly put my heart and soul into my dishes. I love cooking so much that I started my own catering company, Fox In The Woods Catering Company.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian and Mexican foods. I had the best teachers for my Mexican dishes, my parents are wonderful cooks. I love experimenting with different Italian dishes with fresh ingredients. I love baking too. I love trying new dessert dishes and I am always the one to volunteer a dessert for a function.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making dishes that my mother and father and grandma taught me to make. One of my favorites is homemade Taquitos with gucamole, Pork Chile Verde, Mexican rice, refried beans, my grandma Jennie's macaroni salad and my sister-in-law Patti's Strawberry pretzel salad. That is my favorite meal to make. My favorite time of year is Christmas when my mom and my aunts have our annual tamale party. We have so much fun making homemade tamales and just being together.
My cooking triumphs
I love having succesful dinner parties. I've done dinner parties for 50 or more people. I love cooking dinner for our church. I am in the catering business and I enjoyed cooking in client's homes.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married, my husband was my food tester and would try all the dishes I was learning to make. Some were not so successful, but he has always been honest with me and encouraged me to never give up and keep trying. Now he would love to see me open my own restaurant.
