I've always loved cooking. I give the credit to my mother, who is the best cook that I know. She is always learning new recipes, techniques and even has made her own "family recipe" book, which she has passed down to her daughters.
I'm a piano and voice teacher working towards my graduate degree in musicology.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love grilling right now! It's easy, fun and makes a quick clean up. Plus -- it's great for entertaining, as your guests can gather outside and enjoy the scrumptious smells.
I also enjoy cooking fish, vegetables, chicken and finding new recipes for salads. In the past year I started baking bread, something I love to do when I have the time. We try to eat as healthy as we can on a rather low budget.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home cooked meals with little or no preservatives, organic ingredients and lots of whole foods.
