Thirty-nine years in a joyful marriage, three grown sons, one dog, an unruly but loyal garden, an ancient house perpetually in a state of renovation, repair and occasionally despair, crowded bookcases, cluttered closets, cherished friends – life is good!
My favorite things to cook
Soups and stews -- comfort foods with panache. Cumin, chocolate, chipotle and a little coconut perhaps?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday cooking, while tripping over the whole family in the kitchen. We love, laugh, cook and enjoy the results.
My cooking triumphs
Yorkshire pudding for 25 - with a perfectly roasted beef tenderloin.
My cooking tragedies
That dratted 30lb Turkey who kept all of us wating for an extra two hours. (Note to self - make LOTS of appetizers)
