I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I really enjoy cooking, baking, grilling and trying new recipes. My husband and I love to travel and we are somewhat foodies. I like to try to recreate our favorite dishes from our travels or put a twist on recipes to suit my families taste. I met my husband while living in California but now we live in Florida. I love to use fresh ingredients and occasionally I like to add a little spice to our life and our food.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things that I like to cook are Italian, Seafood, Thai and Baja Style mexican food. I do love to bake though I am still learning how to decorate my baked goods. Still learning there.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition would be Thanksgiving. What I love about this holiday is the whole family is all together and my daughter helps me in the kitchen. Also, the decorations and the smells of a bounty of good food. Good times.
My cooking tragedies
I guess one of the cooking tragedies I remember the most is when I added way too much cayanne pepper to a chicken pot pie recipe that I was trying for the first time.(I do like to experiment) Wow, that was tough to eat. Even my husband, who loves spice could barely eat it. He did eat it although he was laughing and shaking his head the whole time. LOL... I will never live that one down.
