My favorite things to cook
I love baking and trying new dishes. I also love doing preserves as well as soups and chili
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make amazing Indian as well as Middle Eastern dishes. Hummus that is over the top delicious and so easy to make!
My cooking triumphs
Cooked a full 4 course meal for over 500 people (with the help of 5 other workers under my gudiance) It was a huge success - and it felt great to get the rave reviews and many requests in the years that followed for my cooking talents.
My cooking tragedies
Many Thanksgivings ago I had planned a Thanksgiving Dinner for two Mormon missionaries. The boys were a long ways from home and I wanted to make sure they felt like they were getting the home style cooking. I actually had prepared everything, especially my excellent gravy. Everything was on the table except the turkey. As I sent the beautiful turkey on the table, the legs just gave out (it was an old wood table with rickety legs to begin with) and EVERYTHING went crashing down to the floor! It was a pure disaster. I just looked on in disbelief and then my daughter and the two young missionaires started laughing. Thank heavens the pie was not on the table. We had pie for dinner...
