About Me
I started cooking when I was 13 years old. I now have 3 kids and 8 grand childen. Cooking and creating good food is my life. I have recntly completed my first cook book and am in the process of trying to get it published
My favorite things to cook
I love all foods. I love to discover new cuisine and experiment. I love to de-construct an every day dish and bring it back to life in a whole new way.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time of year is the holidays. My mother made the holidays very special so I love entertaining and creating new dishes every year. We have a traditional Christmas Tree Cutting day where we have a big family brunch-go cut our trees the come back and serve trays of cookies and hot chocolate.
My cooking triumphs
Was my first wedding cake. I become a commercial cake decorator at 19 and my first cake was 4' tall. It was a great feeling. I also catered a party for a fund raiser as one of my catering events and I got more attention then the candidate that put on the party.
My cooking tragedies
The only big tragedie I can recall was when I was 17 years old and I made my first pumpkin pie with the help of my mother-in-law. I put salt in place of sugar-like a cup and half and didnt know it til they came out of the oven Well-who puts salt in a 5 gallon container. They looked great. I had to start over.
