My kitchen is my favorite room and when I have a knife and cutting board and a bunch of fresh ingredients to work with I am as happy as can be - :+)
My favorite things to cook
Sauces, reductions, things that make a dish POP!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with comfort foods like fried chicken, chile rellenos, pork chops and rice, chicken fried steak, caldo de res, mole, spaghetti bolognese, so it is always fun to break out those recipes recreate and introduce others to them.
My cooking triumphs
My Osso Bucco was a huge success, my prime rib has been wonderful,Salmon on cedar board, Paella, Coq Au Vin...I am loving my new LaCrueset cookware!!
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I am hit and miss with baked fish...just cannot seem to get the temp and moisture right, and I end up with a puddle of sole. LOL!!!
