While I was out camping on the perimeter of the Gulf of Alaska this past summer, I had a cooking epiphany. I had a can of chili from Safeway, and a 3-pound Italian salami log. We were out of fish, running out of MREs, and we still had about 3 days left
til we headed homeward. So, I decided…
I got accepted to Johnson and Wales University's culinary program right after high school. After deciding not to be a cook for life, I started taking Interior Design courses in college, and I am the wife of a US Marine.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with cheese or chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's sweet potato casserole, and my pumpkin pie.
My cooking triumphs
My version of Taste of Home's chicken bean casserole is bomb, and I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like my pie crust. Once my family found that I make the best crust, I became the one who brings the pie to family dinners.
My cooking tragedies
Burning water. Haha!
