I live in Sacramento, California with my wonderful husband and my Yorkie, Our three children have all flown the coupe, and so far given us five beautiful grandchildren. I cook in large amounts and freeze portions since there are only two of us. This works out great for us, and I always have plenty for company!
My favorite things to cook
I love to use my crock pot. The food is always good and the house smells fabulous all day! I'm especially fond of soups and stews and the endless taste combinations they present. I also like experimenting with different spices and trying recipes from different parts of the country and world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every December we celebrate 'Family Christmas'. I have a big party the weekend before Christmas, so that our children and relatives can get together and celebrate the season. The party is always themed- Italian, Mexican,cowboy,soups, etc., so the food is something to look forward to as well as the company!
My cooking triumphs
Our 'Family Christmas' parties are always a hit. I get to discover and practice new recipes and techniques that I use throughout the year.
My cooking tragedies
Burning the garlic bread when my inlaws came to visit (yes, it was actually on fire)
