I grew up a terribly picky eater, so I didn't discover a lot of foods until I was in my 20's....when I met my fiance -- he can cook but prefers not to so I thought I would give it a try, and damned if I didn't turn into a foodie and a pretty decent cook. I love new recipes and just walking around Whole Foods looking at produce.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking comfort food, macaroni and cheese and chili and mashed potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family makes homemade donuts on Christmas morning. I look forward to it every year.
My cooking triumphs
I made beef wellington perfectly the first time I tried.
My cooking tragedies
French Onion Soup. Mine had zero flavor. I have decided maybe it is just a special thing I can order when I eat out!
