I am divorced and live with my doggy who is more than happy to try my recipes!!! I enjoy creating new dishes and cooking traditional favorites. I love to experiment with recipes, and create altogether new ones!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook dishes with chicken, it is easy and versatile! Garlic is a must in all my dishes, I never cook without it! Fresh vegetables over canned anyday! And a salad with every meal is a must!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cuisine is very meat-and-potatoes oriented. I LOVE pasta and rice dishes, but once in a while a good beef roast with some steamed veggies and baked potatoes really hits the spot!
My cooking triumphs
I have made the best looking Thanksgiving feast known to man! Even passed up the cover of the magazines! The turkey was perfect, all the sides were scrumptous, a feast to remember!
My cooking tragedies
I attempted Beef Wellington once at Christmas or Easter, I can't remember which, but I purchased the wrong cut of meat and it made all the difference. The whole thing was ruined and despite my best attempts to save what took me all day to make, it was an absolute disaster. Someday I will tell you about the Chinese Chicken--my family still cringes at the words!
