I'm a mother or an 8yr old Girl, Ivy and 2 yr old boy, Jasper. I love to entertain. I enjoy hosting large parties as well as cooking for friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love it when I create or find a new recipe that becomes an old favorite. I love to make my Red Pepper Pesto in the summer and I am required to make my individual cheesecakes for holiday gatherings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
During the holiday I bring my individual Cheesecakes, made with blueberry and chocolate chip toppings to holiday parties. They are always a big hit because they are easier to eat than a slice of cheese cake. I know the holiday season has started when I start making my cheesecakes.
My cooking triumphs
I have hosted several bridal showers and birthday parties where I am asked if I ever thought about going into the catering business.
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I made my husband was called Paprika Chicken, a recipe I got from a co-worker. It was horrible, I followed the directions, but it seemed to be missing something. My husband pretended to like it even though I kept saying he didn't have to eat it. That was 15 years ago and every now and then he'll make reference to it and we'll have a good laugh.
