I'm a criminal defense attorney living near Cincinnati. I have two cats and an adorable puppy. I started really cooking in law school and love finding new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Chili, appetizers, beverages (it's still kind of cooking right?), and anything new!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's family came from Germany several generations back, so my great aunt still cooks many traditional German recipes. Our favorite is sour roast beef and homeade noodles. We also do pork and sauerkraut every new years!
My cooking triumphs
Pulled off an entire Thanksgiving dinner in 2010 with extremely limited experience. Tried BBQ ribs, which turned out pretty well.
My cooking tragedies
I've lit several kitchens on fire (although none suffered much damage!). Most notably, I put frozen garlic bread in my oven. Five minutes later, the bread was literally on fire. The fire department said the oven malfunctioned... had to buy a new oven. Yikes!
