As for many others, mom was a big influence in the kitchen. I inherited her way of making great dishes with whatever is on hand.
My favorite things to cook
I love making stews and hearty soups, anything with lots of flavour where fresh herbs, in particular, will set a dish apart.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Great holiday roasts.
My cooking triumphs
It's how I impress somebody who needs to be impressed.
My cooking tragedies
Many years ago I ruined a microwave by putting a pizza pocket inside for 10 minutes...it wasn't a 'typo' i misread the label and didn't use common sense :(
