About Me
I am an OB/GYN nurse and an avid runner. I usually enjoy half marathons, but have also completed a full marathon and a triathalon. My other passion is cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I love brunch foods- stratas, stuffed mushrooms, etc. I also enjoy appetizers and desserts of any kind.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have been so fortunate to have a family that has been supportive of letting me experiment on them. My favorite current tradition is that my husband and I devote 1 night a week to new recipes only. An older tradition that is a favorite is getting all the women of the family together 1 day a year to make all of our Christmas cookies!
My cooking triumphs
It brings me so much joy to cook for other people and have them enjoy it. My friend has her spouse rate recipes on a scale of 1 to 10. Once at a soup cook off, she asked him to rate the soup I entered, and he said, "10!" I was grinning from ear to ear, and my soup ended up winning the contest.
My cooking tragedies
We all have them, right? One thing that I am always open to is experimenting with new foods. Of course, this means some don't turn out. One time, I was trying to replicate a parsnip soup I had in England. Unfortunatly, the end result tasted not so good- I was so disappointed! Another trial of a rudabega dish was totally inedible- we dumped the entire thing down the drain!
