I've been cooking as long as I can remember. As a young girl my mom and I had a deal - If I cooked dinner, she did the dishes. Great incentive to learn to cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to try anything once. Homemade pizzas are my creative outlet and I'm slowly learning to enjoy baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to love spending the day in my grandma's kitchen helping her make bread.
My cooking triumphs
Any time my hard-to-please husband tells me he likes something is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 8 and made muffins that tasted like playdough. I think I mistakenly used salt instead of sugar. Even the ducks at the park wouldn't touch them. Oh, and Thanksgiving 2005. Undercooked turkey, overcooked or cold side dishes and not enough mashed potatoes.
