I have been learning to cook my whole life. My cooking hero is my grandmother whose passion and creativity inspire me to this day. She taught me that although the hostess is not always thanked, their care and skill are always appreciated. I hope to continue her tradition of beautiful decor, warm welcomes, and delicious cuisine, for every occassion!
My favorite things to cook
I recently became a vegetarian, and am learning to turn vegetables into masterpieces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pasta salads, rice dishes and rich potatoes. Surprising presentation and irresistable smells!
My cooking triumphs
My first and only homemade pot pie. Veggie, of course, and it turned out delicious! I made two crusts from scratch, and chopped each organic, local vegetable. I tried to do it again, but have been unsuccessful since.
My cooking tragedies
Lucky me, I have been fortunate enough to have everything turn out decent. Not all my work is wonderful, but so far, nothing garbage worthy!
