I have been cooking since I was about eight years old and love providing delicious and nutritious meals for family and friends. I love a challenge and if a recipe puzzles me as to how it might taste- I am in! lol
My favorite things to cook
Anything that tastes good and that makes my family and friends happy. Biscotti, home-made jams and salsa, ribs, cake, cookies,salads...you name it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Salad bar night. Baked potato bar. Big buffet type spread for Super Bowl and Academy Awards.
My cooking triumphs
Going to be published in Ladies Home Journal! April 2014 issue will have a story about my dad's sugar cookie recipe that I wrote and submitted. Very excited.
Another triumph was planning the cooking for both my boys Eagle Courts- cooked for over 100 people- everything from salads through desserts.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started baking I was about eight or nine. I made peanut butter cookies with a cup of salt! The recipe already called for BROWN sugar, and then it said 1 cup s. So, I figured it was salt. Horrible!
