I am happily married to a very talented Tattoo Artist who is appreciative of my kitchen skills among my other talents. I am also a proud momma to a wonderful little 17month old boy. Cooking for them and others gives me great joy.
My favorite things to cook
Pies, Italian dishes, traditional Southern dishes,really anything that is new, challenging or I've never eaten before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everything! My whole family loves to cook. I grew up standing on a stool in the kitchen aside my Mom or Dad doing everything from canning peaches and baking pies to enter in the fair to making Christmas Prime Rib with Yorkshire pudding and Plum Pudding for dessert. Love my parents an grandparents for that. Now its my turn to pass on Tradition
My cooking triumphs
Making Tiramisu from Scratch Ladyfingers and all. Ummmm......"growing" my own Croissants for 3 days from an old French recipe.....best thing with coffee! Making Kaluah Pig with my Dad
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting the salt in a Pumpkin pie once :'(
