I love to get out of my comfort zone. Sure I can make bacon mac & cheese with my eyes shut... but why not try something different?!
My favorite things to cook
I try to cook something "gourmet" once a week. My dessert recipe box is a little full right now... oh yes, I love to use the deep fryer! I'm also really into cold-brew coffee right now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Drop donuts. Hot cocoa and toast on Sundays. Pineapple upside-down French Toast on Easter. Whipped cream from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
Turkey Boudin Blanc for Thanksgiving. That's a turkey breast roulade with pork belly inside. http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/boudin-blanc-stuffed-turkey-breasts-with-chestnuts
I also make a mean Cuban Sandwich. Thanks for the inspiration, Chef!
My cooking tragedies
mini-smors on a cooling rack under the broiler...
