In the kitchen is where I belong! Cooking is a hobby of mine that started when I was a teenager. It is a joy for me to spend a whole weekend trying new recipes. I grow my own herbs and hopefully next year I'll have a nice garden producing many vegetables. My husband loves to eat and my little boy seems to be taking after his Daddy. I love to go to the beach, watch football (mostly Penn State and Steelers), and go shopping!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort Food pretty much sums it up. Soups, fish, chicken, potatoes. I will stuff a chicken breast with just about anything - pesto, apples & cheddar, broccoli, bruschetta, mushrooms and swiss!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy entertaining. I love it when my house is filled with the people I love most.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Tortilla Soup - a great party soup! Salmon Chowder...I'm very proud of that one. I have one recipe published on allrecipes.com and I consider that a triumph. It's Thanksgiving Spinach Salad. I highly recommend it!
My cooking tragedies
Oh yes. There have been several. I just take each one as a learning experience.
