Oh, how I wish I had more than three days to prepare for vacation. I always do this though; life seems to operate in slow motion up until the day before I leave. It’s only then I remember the list of things I really should’ve done a week ago. I will soon switch into high gear, the washer and… MORE

About Me
I love to cook and bake. I live to eat, not eat to live. I love eating out and trying new things! I’ve been a vegetarian for my whole life, but I do sneak the occasional slice of bacon or pepperoni.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are usually vegetarian; Indian, Vietnamese and Thai cuisines are a few of my favorites. I also have a sweet tooth; cheesecakes and cookies are my specialties!
My favorite family cooking traditions
People often wonder where I get my love for cooking; my Mom cooks out of a box and my Dad was always too busy to cook. Perhaps I am a foodie at heart and it was an instinct for survival?
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy cooking for large groups, but it’s such a big task! Lots of planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning! I always feel a great sense of accomplishment once everyone has food on their plate!
My cooking tragedies
Most recently I dropped an entire quiche on the floor. I was trying to move it to a different rack in the oven, and I dropped it upside down. What a mess!
