I am a married mother of 3, married to husband of 32 years who loves my cooking. The kids are always amazed at what I can create from looking at a recipe. Unfortunately, none of them has inherited my love for cooking lol!! Hubby is also a great cook, and he is the grill master at our house - I do the marinating!!! :)
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything Italian. Fish is another thing I love to cook, mostly salmon and swordfish. I also like my bread machine!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas at my parents' house. I try to bring a dish to these gatherings for everyone to try.
My cooking triumphs
Taking a recipe and tweaking it to my family's satisfaction. I know all their likes and dislikes, so I use that in coming up with what I can create.
My cooking tragedies
When 9 months pregnant, I was grilling ribs on the BBQ (never did it before!) and closed the lid, they cooked too long and were burnt to a crisp. Add to that I sat down in a lawn chair to ease my pregnant swollen feet and the chair collapsed, sending me to the ground and I had a hard time getting up. It's funny now, but wasn't then lol!!
