I am a school teacher in California with two grown children. I used to stick to the quick and easy dishes when I was raising a family, but now I have more time and my taste buds have grown more complex.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with the recipes on this site. Baking is probably my area of expertise. I make a mean Raspberry white chocolate cheesecake and a pretty good creme brulee.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come a family of bakers and watch out when we get together for the holidays. I have just started a new tradition in my family and that is a X-mas cookie exchange.
My cooking triumphs
cheesecake, creme brulee, brownies, biscotti, spahgetti, manicotti, tacos, enchiladas.
My cooking tragedies
rosemary chicken, my family said it tasted like weeds, not herbs.
