Wife, mother of four boys, sister, friend and hockey mom. I love to cook and being in my kitchen is my happy place. Retired from the high tech industry after 30 years, I'm enjoying just being focused on my family.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy recipes with multi layers of flavors and processes. I also love the challenge of wine and food pairings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies and traditional holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
As the wife of a successful hunter and mother to more hunters, I enjoy the challenge of cooking big game, water fowl and upland birds and game. We have some amazing 'Game Feeds' with multiple courses of wild game and wine pairings.
My cooking tragedies
Baking - an area for me to improve. I have had some successes and many failures. I love the process and trying so although I get discouraged, I am forever encouraged that someday I'll get it right and figure it all out. Could use some professional training here!
