Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, where everyone loves seafood.. everyone but me, though I do enjoy some steamed crabs or shrimp now and then. I am a newlywed, married September 17, 2011 to my best friend. We love food almost as much as we love eachother!(LOL)
My favorite things to cook
I just love cooking in general! I love trying new things, but I also enjoy simple comfort foods.
My favorite thing to cook would probably be Chicken Bryan from Carrabba's. Its a grilled chicken breast topped with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes in a garlic butter sauce. I serve it with angel hair pasta.. Mmmmmmmm
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have any secret family recipes in my family. My dad was the cook when I was growing up, so I got a lot of my skills from watching him. Then when I was old enough and I would cook, he would watch me and correct me on a constant. It was annoying at the time, but now I am glad for his help!
My cooking triumphs
Pancakes. I know it may sound silly, but I could never get pancakes right. They were always flat and rubbery. My dad didn't cook them, and my mother was just as bad as I was. So I just avoided making them. Until one day I decided to attempt them again for my husband. The key is to not overmix the batter and to make sure your pan is nice and hot. I have been making pancakes perfect ever since! :)
