Wife and mother who loves the kitchen. I own every kitchen gadget there is but I still love to do things the old fashioned way, the way I was taught.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, especially cakes of any kind. Doctoring up a box or from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother made the most wonderful and beautiful dinners for special occasions and holidays. I try to follow that tradition with my children including setting the table with the 'good' china and fresh flowers. Baking cookies during the Christmas holiday while decorating the tree is another favorite tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I have finally perfected my curry chicken and found a great recipe for bread pudding, like my mother used to make.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a good biscuit regardless of the recipe.
