Well, I love to cook. Anything from the ordinary to something exotic. My recipes have been published in magazines and a Neiman-Marcus cookbook. I learned a lot from Julia Child's books, Food Network and a lifetime of eating good food all over the world. I have a fantastic Don Silvers' designed kitchen at home with all the right hardware, but am equally adept with a toaster oven and gas grill.
My favorite things to cook
I love making a prime rib of beef for Christmas and reserve the turkey for Thanksgiving. A crown pork roast is my favorite for a birthday celebration.
Dinner is usually a breast of chicken, a pork tenderloin, or a ground beef recipe. i love mashed potatos and am not above using instant ones from a box. Thank you very much Betty Crocker and Hungry Jack.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom was from Scotland and taught me how to make a Shepard's pie, rack of lamb and Southern fried chicken.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my caterer to make my recipes without screwing them up.
My cooking tragedies
Having friends cart in Lasagna and spaghetti from almost every Italian restaurant in town when a caterer wrecked his truck en route to my party.
