I grew up on a cattle ranch/corn farm in the Midwest. After getting married, I moved to California where I now live on a vineyard.
My favorite things to cook
I love a variety of different flavors, and love to experiment
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July and birthdays were always a time to anticipate each favorite dish that was traditionally served on those days.
My cooking triumphs
I'm still working on perfecting many different dishes. I someday hope to post a triumphant dinner party report on this site someday.
My cooking tragedies
Ah....why dwell on what was, when it can be so much better given the chance to improve - once I figure out what I did wrong! LOL
