I'm a 30-something girl who loves the important things of life: my family, my friends, my puppies and my food. I truly believe that God placed the ingredients on this earth to cure any disease and to bring us happiness through our sense of taste.
My favorite things to cook
I love Indian-inspired dishes. My favorite spices are yellow curry, cumin seed, thyme. I love to make yum dishes that are also healthful and guilt-free. I like to make sure that my ingredients are wholesome and natural. Processed food has no place in my kitchen. =)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family always makes a ribeye roast at Christmas and Thanksgiving instead of Turkey. We love our family recipes. My grandma's banana bread, cinnamon rolls and pumpkin roll are to die for. One of my favorite dishes growing up was my mom's beef stroganoff.
My cooking triumphs
I have to say my Chianti meat sauce is pretty awesome. It's a recipe that took years to perfect and it is perfect.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a honey glaze salmon one time that left a stench in my house for a week. It was so bad I just took the whole pan outside and put it on the porch. Nasty!!!
