My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, soups, desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Squeezing lemons for my mother's lemon-meringue pies from childhood onward. And whipping the egg whites by hand for the meringue.
My cooking triumphs
An anniversary party for my husband and I on October 2, 2010 where all the main foods and desserts were prepared by me and no one was aware that I was capable of any type of cooking as the "baby of the family". They were all surprised, but my husband was not, he knew :-).
My cooking tragedies
Trial soups and a ponchartrain sauce (no madeira wine)that were made recently.
