Unlikely domestic goddess...I absolutely love nesting in my home and feeding my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I mostly cook on the weekends, so I like to try new things or make special things while I have the time. I especially like to make things that can be prepared in advance and popped in the oven for mealtime.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family tree looks like an immigration map of the US, so my traditions include Southern cooking, Italian and Greek dishes, and also German and English standbys. I enjoy learning how to make things that my relatives make well. I'm still trying to perfect my grandma's baked beans!
My cooking triumphs
Any time someone wants a second helping or is smiling throughout the meal, it's a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Any time I've had a tragedy, it's because I wasn't patient enough!
