I live in O'Fallon MO. I've been married for 14 years and have two beautiful children. I come from a family of good cooks, not open up a restaurant and get 5 star review cooks, but warm your soul kind of cooks. I've always had an interest in cooking and have found through the years if you cook with confidence most dishes will come out great!
My favorite things to cook
I like to make homemade pizzas, Mexican style dishes and I love to cook for a crowd. I also like throwing parties and making appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I throw a party for about 20 every New Years Eve and make the samething. Prime rib, homemade alfredo pasta, roasted red potatoes, and salad with an array of appetizers. This meal isn't inventive by any means but everyone loves it. It's become our tradition, with great memories, great comfort food, and all of our closet friends and family.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the perfect pizza crust, sauce, and cooking time. We have it down to a science now. I have large pizza parties I supply a large variety of toppings from veggies,meats, fresh herbs,fruits, three types of sauces and an array of cheese. Everyone assembles there own and then we cook them to perfection. It's so exciting to see how inventive everyone becomes.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried making homemade hash browns were a complete disaster! It's a simple dish right, well I wasn't really thinking and decided to use my electric shredder to shred the potatoes. The potatoes turned into a nasty lump of gray yuckyness! My dear friend felt so bad for me she still ate them, bless her heart. I wouldn't have touched them with my worst enemy’s mouth.
