I am a retired Chef and the daughter of 2 Chefs. I only cook for friends now and because I don't know how to cook for 2 we always have friends over.
I love eating in restaurants and dupicating the meals at home
I have 2 dogs and foster more. I believe in fostering not breeding. So many unwanted dogs are distroyed daily.
My favorite things to cook
Big fan of one pot meals now that I have to do my own dishes.
Refuse to cook the same thing more than 2 or 3 time a year. There are so many recipes and so little time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is not cooking. I love to eat out. We take our grown kids out for Christmas dinner in some of the best restaurants we can find. Yep, I know...lazy.
My cooking triumphs
I can make the annual Disney BBQ taste good and I don't like game.
(my daughter named it the Disney BBQ...Bear (pooh) Rabbit (Thumper) Venison (Bambi).
My cooking tragedies
I was cooking Spaetzle and my sink was so full of stuff I could not drain it. Not wanting it to overcook I pick up the pot and hurried upstairs to drain it in the bathroom. I slipped on the stairs and got 3rd degree burns on my arms.
I always clean out the sink before I start any pasta now.
