I live in a small coastal town located in Northern California with my hubby and 3 dogs. I love to cook and will try anything once. My husband enjoys being my guinea pig and sampling new recipes for me. My dream was to always become a chef or own my own bistro. Haven't gotten there yet, but there is still time! I enjoy hosting parties and get-togethers for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I pretty much love to cook anything. Seems the more difficult, the greater the challenge, the more I like it. I enjoy cooking ethnic foods; especially Thai, Indian & Greek. Baking is relaxing to me and one of my favorite things to do on a cold and dreary day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern cooking styles handed down by my mother and grandmother. Comfort foods my mom used to make. Hosting big traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with lots of family like my mom & gramma used to do. Now that they have both passed on, I try and keep that cherished family tradition going.
My cooking triumphs
I make a Peanut Butter Chocolate cream cheese cake that is heavenly! This past Thanksgiving was a challenge since I cooked for over 15 people, but it all came out perfect and tasty and I got great compliments!
My cooking tragedies
Pork chops! I try and try and still can't get them right!
