I am a nurse. I love cooking most of the time I find it very relaxing. I love to cook for people who love to eat.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new dishes...but often fall back on the tried and true.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas eve....Spaghetti. Most of my family lives on the east coast...so on christmas eve I invite family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by on christmas eve where there is usually a little gift, a big pot of sauce bubbling, and a drinkie pooh or two...just a perfect night to say your loved and your family.
My cooking triumphs
A dinner party with 20 plus guests...a fundraiser for scleroderma...an Italian theme roaring 20s flappers and all. Seafood lasagna, Spaghetti, and an Italian wedding cake for dessert and certainly a lot of wine flowing...raised about $900.00.
My cooking tragedies
added too much red wine to a chicken and rice recipe (obviously didn't add enough to my guests) and ended up with purple rice chicken casserole. Not very good....lol
