I have owned a pet grooming, boarding and training kennel for over 31 years along with my life partner, my husband.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make fresh salads and pasta but I am known for my Rum Cake. I also love to work with Puff Pastry making sweet and savory dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German Chicken and dumplings is my favorite family recipes but I'd have to say my family loves my southwest beans and rice as well.
My cooking triumphs
Improving and mastering the best Rum Cake most folks have ever tasted. Some tell me I should try and sell it. But then I tell them it wouldn't be as special.
My cooking tragedies
Christmas dinner, 1993 for family and friends. It was a TOTAL loss and one dinner those folks will never let me live down. It's ok because I've improved 1000% since then :-)
