I have been cooking for my family for longer than I care to remember. I was sick of frozen, middle aisle foods so one day I just took over and never looked back.
My favorite things to cook
Kitchen surprise... give me a kitchen that has overgrown its food stock, and I'll make an amazing dish... most of the time. I usually find recipes based upon the main ingredient I'm trying to use up whether it be a spice or a protein.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Wellington done to perfection. There is nothing better!
My cooking tragedies
Just out of college, I was starting to cook on a regular basis. My mother sent me a food processor which came with a recipe for a mocha mousse. I proceeded to use a tablespoon of coffee grinds instead of coffee... It was a disaster. Now my friends 20 years later still joke about my 'crunchy mocha mousse'. Ughh.
