I'm a cardiac nurse practitioner. I love to cook and love this site!
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers!! I am known as the "appetizer Queen" among my family and friends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Learned to cook with my Grandma. I still have the set of cookbooks she gave me as a child. (They are in serious need of rebinding but still get the job done). I generally reproduce my childhood holiday meals for my family but add a bit of my own personal flare.
My cooking triumphs
I won an appetizer cook off and was awarded a trophy!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started dating my husband I was going to make him this wonderful decadent german chocolate/cream cheese cake. I did not realize his oven was a wreck. It came out with burnt edges and a very gooey center!
