I love cooking and trying out new dishes on my family. I really like going to the farmers market and finding what's in season and coming up with new ways to cook things. I also like trying new ethnic dishes. My favorites are thai, mexican, chinese, japanese, mediteranean & italian. I also like good old homestyle american comfort cooking.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a baby daughter and am learning all about making baby foods and will hopefully pass on my love of cooking.
We have a Christmas Eve tradition of clam chowder, oyster stew, crab soup and this bologna mixture sandwich. I have learned to like the sandwich over the last 30 years.
My cooking triumphs
I make a killer mac and cheese and barbequed ribs.
I really do well at the comfort foods, the ones that are really rich and bad for you. You know the ones that taste the best!
My cooking tragedies
I tried a new creamed spinach gratin recipe for a 20 person Thanksgiving this year. The spinach part was wonderful but the gratin topping had way to many bread crumbs with not enough butter and cheese so the whole dish tasted like dry bread crumbs...
