I am working mom! During the day I am a drafting technician and graphic designer, and at night I specialize in being wife and mommy.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking pastas and toying with variations on sauces. Rice is a fun and versatile ingredient as well!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom, and grandma before her, always cook chicken and noodles (like dumplings) during the cold weather. We all get together and stuff ourselves and play cards. During the springtime, we enjoy a good corned beef and cabbage meal!
My cooking triumphs
I was able to cook a lemon meringue pie... perfectly! The meringue came out beautiful on my first try, and I didn't even have an automatic mixer.
My cooking tragedies
Many tragedies... too many to list. My chicken pot pie's homemade crust was inedible, so the next night I took the leftovers, threw out the crust, revamped the sauce, and served it over rice. Yummy!
