20 yrs cooking. my parents were very tolerant about all my "experiments" in the kitchen. thanks to them i grew to love cooking and pursued a career as a professional, not through a school but through experience in working kitchens. what i can not learn in kitchens i challenge myself with at home.
my goals are to one day work in a almost all vegetarian or vegan kitchen, and feed as many people as a can, free of charge
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna-the sky is the limit! Soup-a perfect soup is just..... perfect and timeless.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mom's christmas morning crown of gold.
planning and making all of my family's thanksgiving weekend meals
My cooking triumphs
cooking a fabulous dinner for my vegan friend
cooking a fabulous thanksgiving dinner for my meat eating family.
creating new appetizers for the catering company i was employed at
My cooking tragedies
most memoriable, sugar cookies that were as hard as rocks and tasted like a box of baking soda.
making a cake from a box, but trying to pass it off as homemade
