My favorite things to cook
Exotic and aromatic dishes are tops with me and my family. I love preparing unique dishes my guests (and I) have never tried. I'm not afraid to take chances! My favorite dishes come from Greece, Morocco, India, and Mexico, and the spicier the better!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grilling meat anytime it isn't raining or snowing is my family's preference, as long as the rub mix is flavorable, and there is a good sauce complementing it.
My cooking triumphs
I make a great baklava which I can't post because it's from a recipe book, but I love the look on my guests' faces when I serve it. I also have a carrot cake, refined through the years, which I'll have to post here soon! A lot of my triumphs lately have come from this great recipe site-- what a wonderful bunch of cooks there are here!
My cooking tragedies
Everytime I get lazy and bring out some canned or frozen pre-made dish, my family dives into a funk. I will never present canned Chinese food or soggy corn-on-the-cob from frozen again!
