Love to cook (obviously!) and discover new favortie recipies. I also love wine and go to tastings nearly every week. Hosting dinner parties are another favorite pastime, although I've been behind in that.
My favorite things to cook
Gioza, Spaghetti, Baked Beans, Fried chicken, Sausage Biscuit & Gravy, Austi Jello (fun for the over 21 crowd), chocolate belgium waffles with ganache, french fries, mexican dishes, apple pie, balsamic vinegrette dresssing, cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baked mac&cheese, chocolate pie, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs - pretty much anything southern.
My cooking triumphs
my spaghetti - it's really evolved over several years, I finally think I have it perfected to my taste. I serve that with salad and my balsamic vinegarette dressing, and garlic cheese bread.
My cooking tragedies
the first time I try cooking a new recipie, it never comes out good. After that first disaster, I can usually figure out what I did wrong or what I need to change in the recipie. I just feel bad for my husband, who's usually the guinea pig.
