My favorite things to cook
Depends on the season. When it is starting to get warm in spring I can't wait to use the grill, but my late summer I am ready to roast in the oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of superior cooks on my Dad's side. My Baba (Grandmother) taught me as a child in her kitchen and my Dad continued throughout my childhood. The whole family cooked and ate dinner together and each person had their special recipies.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake. I am the queen of cheesecake in a family and community that really loves cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. Over the years there have been as many burnt items as undercooked. I once had such a large fire on the grill that I was afraid the house was next.
