We're from the states but moved to the Middle East 3 years ago. It's been a fun experience learning and experiencing all different kinds of cultures. I have three little boys who enjoy making and eating food. My husband is a bit picky so I find I have to alter most meals to suit his taste. I love to read recipes, experiment with recipes, buy food magazines, talk food with others, etc. I love AllRecipes.com and look at it nearly everyday.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make sweets and appetizers. My husband and I work with teenagers and so I'm often making food for them. I love to watch them devour the new and interesting things I experiment with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our favorite family meal is a grand breakfast. My boys love fancy waffles or creative pancakes. We like to mix the sweet with the savory and make a nice latte with it.
My cooking triumphs
I made a beautiful lowfat cheesecake, chicken milano, strawberry-spinach salad and brushetta for my dear friends birthday last year. It was delicious and really impressed her and the other guests.
My cooking tragedies
Probably the worst thing I ever made was a chicken crockpot dish. It was dry and tasted like old socks.
