I'm a librarian in a small-medium size library in Central New York. I love to read and I do a lot of hiking with my basset, Lucy.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking Italian dishes first and foremost, but I also like to make crock pot meals. The ingredients I cook with the most are chicken, fresh parmesan, and prosciutto.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have cooking traditions in my family, so I've taken up the gauntlet and make two new recipes a week.
My cooking triumphs
I love to cook for people who are doubters, and convince them that yes, they can in fact (recent example) eat spinach if cooked the right way. Or pesto is a lot better than it looks.
My cooking tragedies
My first peanut sauce. It was pretty bland.
