I'm a mother of two young boys and enjoy cooking for my family and friends. When I am not in a hurry, I find cooking a creative and relaxing hobby. I especially love to cook while listening to smooth jazz :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian, gourmet appetizers, breakfast entrees, desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Enjoying a homemade breakfast on Sundays with my husband and children and playing jazz music.
My cooking triumphs
I once made a very difficult beautiful raspberry & lemon cake for a friend's birthday. That was Before Children ;) A recent triumph is that I finally am able to make delicious and beautiful devilled eggs! It used to be that I couldn't peel an egg without putting nicks in the eggs. I think the trick is you have to be sure to soak the eggs in cold water after they are cooked. . .just speculating :)
My cooking tragedies
Many many years ago I made tiramisu for a potluck and I think I put too much coffee on the ladyfingers. Well, needless to say, my tiramisu came out very soggy and I was so embarassed. . .
