I am married to a wonderful husband that eats EVERYTHING I make! I have a beautiful toddler named Isabelle and a sweet baby named Joseph.
My favorite things to cook
I love roasts, chicken breast, stirfry's...
I love making the traditional foods, but gourmet style.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are both wonderful chefs. They have owned restuarants and our family grew up in the restuarant business. I have always had a love for food and people.
My cooking triumphs
I hosted a grad BBQ dinner at our church. We were expecting to have anywhere from 60 - 100 guests. Because of the lack of volunters, I was left to prep alot of the appetizers, as well as the main dinner. To say the least, I was very stressed - but it turned out to be a wonderful time as well as a wonderful meal.
My cooking tragedies
I was having a dinner party at my house, and during the day I got called into work. So I made a lasagna and got all of my prep ready so all I had to do when I got home was change my clothes and freshen up. I placed the lasagna in the oven and set the timer on so 1 hour before our guest were expected the oven would turn on and cook the lasagna. When I arrived home, I didn't walk into a home that smelled like something wonderful was cooking in the oven - in fact - I smelled nothing. My guest arrived, and no meal was prepared. They patiently waited until it was done, but I felt embarrassed!
