My husband, boys and I live in California and love to try out different recipes, types of food, and restaurants. I started cooking on a more regular basis when I got married and I have found it to be one of my most enjoyable hobbies.
I use Allrecipes.com almost daily. I usually only review what I consider to be a 5 star recipe. I'm not very good at photography but do take pictures of most of my endeavors! :)

My favorite things to cook
I am known for my salads and desserts...I'm always asked to bring them to dinners or potlucks. I like most things to be homemade...dressings, salsas, breads, etc. Store bought just doesn't cut it anymore. I enjoy cooking most things and experimenting but warm, homemade bread with butter makes my heart smile!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a lot of cooks in my family. My sister owns a small, successful restaurant, Side Street Cafe in Costa Mesa, CA, and all of my brothers like to cook. We have a lot of great family recipes and we always cook for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Desserts, salads, and homemade breads.
My cooking tragedies
I'm TERRIBLE at cooking chicken dishes. I always overcook so I end up buying
Rotisserie chicken for my recipes.
