I have been married to my husband for 24 years in August. No kids of our own but we have three godchildren, two cats and a rambunctious dog! We love spending time with our family and we love to laugh! I enjoy trying new recipes and am known for being the 'new recipe queen' both at work and with my family.
My favorite things to cook
Being married to an Italian, I think I tend to cook more of that but I enjoy grilling and baking. Lately I have been on a health kick so I've been trying to make better selections for cooking at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spending Thanksgiving with family out in the country every year. Now that we are all grown, we have a lot of new cooks and a lot of food to enjoy. We also spend the day outside, if weather permits, playing horseshoes, football, pictionary or washers. Lots of fun!
My cooking triumphs
One Christmas I took the plunge and bought a beef tenderloin to serve for dinner. It was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking, I decided to have the family over for Thanksgiving and - being the new recipe queen, everything I made was new... bad idea... I recommend only trying one new recipe - especially if it's a special occasion.
