I am a designer at an architectural firm. I live in a cozy brownstone with my family: Patrick the boyfriend, Rambo the rabbit, Henry the cat, and Vincent the bulldog. We are soooo busy, so fast cheap and healthy meals are a must! I am all about mixing a variety of healthy foods together so make something delicious like soups.
My favorite things to cook
Pesto (I am the queen at this)
Cream cheese scrambled eggs with basil
Goat cheese mozzarella and pesto grilled sandwiches
Carrot ginger soup
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pineapple pancakes with orange zesty butter for birthday mornings
Gypsy Soup for fall days
Chocolate bunt cake with cream cheese for birthdays
Chips and guacamole in the summer with margaritas
My cooking triumphs
Just being able to plan meals two weeks in advance that are quick healthy and make my boyfriend happy seems like a good triumph to me. Although for the longest time I could not make good banana bread...that is not the case anymore :)
My cooking tragedies
Grilled cheese...all the time. I feel like the easier the food the worse it turns out.
