About me....hmmm...I love to cook! I grew up cooking with my dad and we made a family recipe book that we refer back to over the years. Once in college and out on my own, I taught myself to cook by watching alot of Food Tv and found this wonderful site called allrecipes.com. I love food, I love cooking, I love to try new things. I also love to put my own spin on recipes and am often complimented (and recipes requested) on my dishes. :-) Feel free to ask me anything, I enjoy reading reviews and seeing the different spin others put on dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Dinners and dips and comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Now that we're older, every one brings a dish to family dinners and parties. I love cooking with my dad and I love it when my brother and husbnad challenge me or tries to show me up. :-) haha! They do a good job at that.
My cooking triumphs
Being creative. I love to open the fridge, cabinet, and pantry and come up with something edible and fantastic!
My cooking tragedies
1.) tried to mimic an Olive Garden dish...not good.
2.) blew up a glass baking pan and destoyed my homemade sauce--went everywhere.
3.) Ill let you know when it happens...
