we lost......but 
Oct. 18, 2009 5:33 am 
well sorry for taking so long to get back, but lots has happened since my last blog. We lost the football game in the few last seconds of the game, but everyone including the coach loved the chili and there is talk about having me cook for all the pre- game dinners, so that was good news...then I came down with the flou and was out of commission for a few days. When I recovered it was time for my 4th cooking demo.....squash bread, 3 bean minestrone, chicken pot pie with butternut squash crust and apple pudding cake and you are correct... holy cow it was a lot of work! thats what I get for letting my husband pick the menu.....won't do that again. Needless to say it went quite well and everyone loved it. My next class is a tribute to Julia Childs I will be cooking beef bourguignon and chocolate mousse, also a Julia Childs lookalike contest, paper hat making contest all while Julia Childs cooking videos  playing in the background.

About Me
I am a mother of 2 happy,lovely girls,3 if you include our loving, cute papillon-maltese puppy. My time is shared with multi-tasking everyday. I run a household and am a chef at our local coffee house in town. I also cater and perform live cooking demos. I also enjoy entertaining at home for our friends. We always seem to have a great turn out for our parties. My husband says that it's because of my unique menu items, how many people get to eat linguini with clam sauce,bruschetta anipasto salad, manicotti stuffed with ricotta and goat chesse, and lavender cookies or olive oil cake?
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, making homemade bagels for our dog, Stella, and my family helping me with my cooking demos (including my mother).
My cooking triumphs
My first catering job (which included a wedding cake)
My cooking tragedies
When I made a banana omelet for my brother at age 10 (who knew bananas and eggs didn't go well together in an omelet?). When, at age twelve, I made spaghetti for my family and kept it warm in the oven in a plastic bowl (it wasn't edible but it was a nice piece of art!).
