I am a working mom of three kiddos: 2 sons & a daughter. Married 9 years to a firefighter & wonderful man. Love to entertain guests and keep my family's bellies full and happy!
My favorite things to cook
I love a challenge - we love all kinds of food and I love to try new ideas and styles. Our oldest son is Autistic so I keep our food totally natural, organic if budget allows.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baklava at Christmas! Creme Brulee French Toast for each birthday breakfast. Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup every two weeks and for any sickness.
My cooking triumphs
I prepared and hosted a full five course dinner for my parent's 30th anniversary for 30 people! I learned to cook in a foriegn country with no labels on the spices at the market - had to rely on my nose.
My cooking tragedies
While I was pregnant I tried a new recipe for a low-fat chicken pot pie. I didn't even sample it because of a sick stomach. I served it to 15 people at a pot-luck to my GREAT EMBARASSMENT! It was horrible... Lesson learned: NEVER serve an untried recipe to a group!
