Perfectionist, wife, traditionalist.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies! Breads! Cakes! Love using tried and true recipes and ingredients (bought an original 1952 Better Homes and Gardens red and white checked cookbook on ebay and use it faithfully!) Mom was right! The best food is simple!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies! Kifli's, spritz, pfefferneuse! Sausage and kraut! Christmas kuchen and bread pudding with rum and raisins.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering grilling chicken without burning it beyond recognition....
My cooking tragedies
Cremating $75 worth of baby back ribs on our brand new "fancy schmancy" grill last summer...I want my Weber back!
