I have a husband who is almost perfect except for his hatred of cheese. I have learned to cook around that, and when he is out of town, the cheese abounds! I love to design jewelry, draw designs with lots of color, and am a true pacifist. Will stop there.
My favorite things to cook
No frying; just good old grilling, saute, roasting and balanced meals that leave leftovers for lunch. Love fresh food and savory flavors that fall into layers in your mouth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom hated to cook, but my Nana who died when I was 11 used the Settlement Cookbook. I love it for many things, but her basic lessons and yellow ware bowl have never left me.
My cooking triumphs
I won a grill off in Cincinnati with pork chops. I still use this concoction on most my grilled and roasted meats.
My cooking tragedies
Proud to say there are not too many, but I have to say that forgetting seasoning a too bland dish has happened to me with company.
