I'm a 2002 graduate of Mount Union College, a sorority recruitment advisor, and an avid singer. I work for a great company that helps uninsured, disabled hospital patients get onto Social Security Disability and Medicaid. I really love my job, and I love to cook to destress!
My favorite things to cook
chicken piccata, seafood chardonnay, fried catfish, beef stirfry. Anything in a wine sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't follow the American holiday food traditions as closely as most everyone else does, and I love that. Easter is roast lamb, Thanksgiving is turkey (of course!), and Christmas is roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. And, we have a family recipe for cheesecake that's amazing.
My cooking triumphs
I was able to break down a recipe at one of my favorite local italian places and make an exact replica! It's a chicken breast in a white wine sauce, smothered in cheddar and mozzarella cheeses and sliced mushrooms. It's to die for!
My cooking tragedies
I make a terrible lasagne. I've never followed a recipe for it, and I think that's my downfall. I need to get my mother's she always makes great lasagne!
