Only cooking for 2 unless we include Bella the cat. Do most cooking in the winter because summer is for gardening! Retired flight attendant and business owner. Enjoying my free time!
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake bread and anything chocolate. Hearty soups are a favorite especially in winter - go well with bread! Like to try new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and grandma were both good cooks but failed to teach anybody. we all had to figure things out for ourselves. I enjoy making my grandma's nut roll from her Slovenian roots and my mom's meat loaf.
My cooking triumphs
Not catching the kitchen on fire when I tried flambe! Short ribs of beef turned out really well and my Christmas specialty, Buche de Noel.
My cooking tragedies
The day our Golden Retriever Molly ate the ham dinner. Good thing we enjoy pizza.
