My love of food and entertaining comes in a close second to my social service work. Food is comforting, relaxing, nurturing, and just plain FUN! It can heal physical ailments, mend mental anguish, provide a spiritual medium and - when used in moderation - can enrich our emotional well being.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet or savory...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade breaded/baked chicken legs, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. There is Greek dish called - and this is my phonetic spelling - keetha-racki. It's made with orzo and meatballs and I just love it!
My cooking triumphs
Any recipe that I've tried from David Rocco, Laura Calder or Ricardo Larrivée!
My cooking tragedies
Any recipe that I've tried to develop myself. Not good.
