My Mom is an ER nurse and has worked the night shift since I was a small child. I love to cook and took over the dinner cooking when I was a preteen. I still cook regularly and take pride in nurturing a meal all day.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook classic Italian dishes. I have also enjoyed the challenge of creating light and healthy meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my Grandmother, she taught me everything I know!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my Mother-in-Laws tomato sauce. None of her recipes even phase me now.
My cooking tragedies
Maybe one continues to phase me. I once tried my Mother-in-Laws Devil Foods Cake with Cream Cheese frosting for my husband on his birthday (his favorite dessert his Mom made). Somehow I added double the amount of butter and the cake was just falling apart when I tried stacking and icing it. It kept breaking and falling off and I kepttrying to hold the sides up, trying to glue it together with the frosting. By the time I was finished it looked like a cookies and cream cake!
