I'm a Culinary School graduate, have raised 7 kids, and started cooking at age 7, inspired by my Dad. I believe food is the foundation of relationships and a wonderful way to express my creativity and love. All these years later, I'm still learning new things!
My favorite things to cook
I'm really big on vegetables and seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have one recipe that has consistently survived 5 generations now called Potato Filling. There would be anarchy if it were not on the table at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Knowing how to substitute ingredients and how flavor profiles can be created, as well as a good understanding of herbs and spices.
My cooking tragedies
Peanut Soup - AGH!
