My mind is happy when I'm cooking and baking. I love filling up the house with great smells from the dinner and dessert that are cooking. I want my daughter to grow up in a house where mom's cooking is a fantastic reality and memory.
My favorite things to cook
I love preparing food in new ways to avoid getting in a rut of cooking the same thing over and over. I move fast in the kitchen, but enjoy every moment. I love planning desserts and meals and have been known to make slight changes to make the recipe easier. I hate using ingredients that are too hard to find in the supermarket. I have too much going on in my life to be stressed out about every little ingredient and locating it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom would have a dessert ready every day after a meal that could feed an army. I loved her Italian cooking. We had a lot of laughs while she was on earth in our various kitchens.
My cooking triumphs
Mexican wedding cake. To die for!!!!
My cooking tragedies
I rarely have them. Probably if I burn cookies. That makes me pretty upset!
