I'm a high school librarian with a passion for cook books and cooking. Nothing makes me happier than when people enjoy what I cook for them.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian or Mexican, because I am 100% Irish and was born into no cooking heritage!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on a Sunday after Thanksgiving my sister and I along with all of my daughters and nieces spend the day making appetizers and sweets for the holidays. I host Christmas Eve and use our bounty then. We divide the rest among the families and we lovingly call it Party in a Box as they leave.
My cooking triumphs
Cloning, after countless tries the burritos from our favorite, now closed down Mexican restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at a turkey, really just a breast. I put the hot pan on the edge of the counter, it hit the floor and so did I as I slid across the kitchen when by bare foot hit that grease!
