I am a happily married, working girl. My husband and I are both self employed, so I enjoy the challenge of trying to prepare flavourful & interesting meals with a hectic schedule.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy experimenting with new recipes and flavour combinations, as well as preparing dishes that I grew up with. I love to cook authentic German, Italian & Indian. Also, party food!! Think chicken wings, quesadillas, and king-sized nacho platters with guacamole.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking together with my husband & entertaining friends and family. Homemade pizza parties, Chinese fried rice with chicken & shrimp and my own special (and famous) wonton soup. Plus I have finally mastered the family pasta sauce, braciole, veal and meatballs! (A very proud accomplishment).
My cooking triumphs
Every time I try a new recipe it feels like a triumph! I guess, homemade apple pie and chicken noodle soup. Any baked dish that involves pastry from scratch. Vegetarian dishes that my husband begs me to make. Old family recipes and of course, cabbage rolls.
My cooking tragedies
Turned on the blender once without top lid on properly, that was a mess.
And I can't forget the grease fire I started the first time I tried making homemade french fries. I burned my eyelashes off ;)
