I am a science and math teacher, and a proud mother of twin boys. I love being active, the outdoors, and of course cooking, which has always been an enjoyable hobby for me.
My favorite things to cook
I've recently taken interest in European cuisine, particularly recipes from the Austria (where my father is from) and France.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is from the deep south and my father is Austrian, so to say I have a background in different foods is an understatement! I grew up where we sat at the table as a family every night, and mostly ate foods prepared from scratch. I was fortunate that way, and I try my best to instill my parents love for food into my family kitchen. I love to entertain, which gives me an outlet to try new things and prepare a variety of foods I don't get a chance to on a daily basis.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Bourguignon, my Oma's Austrian recipes including her sauerbraten and spaetzle.
My cooking tragedies
Although baking has grown on me, I have had some tragic events, including many over-bakes and one sad collapse of a soufle.
