I'm a wife and mother to my precious 6 year-old daughter, Olivia. As she gets older, I hope she'll appreciate the art of cooking and will also love to cook with me. I love cooking and am always experimenting with new recipes or adding my own flair to existing recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to cook dishes which I just make up on the spot with common ingredients. I usually take a recipe as a base from which to work, and then add my own special touches to the dish. I haven't had too many flops that way, and it keeps cooking interesting!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to help my mom with our traditional Christmas Eve Shrimp & Scallop Fettucine. It always turns out so well....sooo incredibly rich and yummy! I also love to help her prepare our Christmas Night traditional Prime Rib. The rub is the key to a perfectly crispy outside and tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat!
My cooking triumphs
Creating new recipes from scratch and constantly searching for ways to improve upon a made-up dish or even an old standby.
My cooking tragedies
I know I've had MANY in the past, but thankfully, none recently!
