I like to cook, garden (roses and organic vegetables), read, and play with my pet birds.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make is homemade pizza. I was raised on Chicago style pizza and can't get that out here on the west coast, so I've learned to make my own. I also like to try new gourmet recipes. I'm always trying to expand my culinary horizon.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of making cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
The first Thanksgiving turkey that I made I forgot to remove the giblet bag before cooking it. (DOH!)
