I just plain love food! Love to eat it, and love learning how to cook it!
My favorite things to cook
Dessert mostly, but anything new, or interesting. I love making themed meals, like all green food for saint paddy's day. I adore ethnic cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family food tradition is Christmas Day at my grandmother's. Every year the meal is a different ethnic theme. Over the years we have had German, Italian, Mexican, Jewish, Thai, Russian, Caribbean etc.
My cooking triumphs
Making my cheesey potatoes for the family I lived with for six months in Austria. I couldnt find canned soup so I had to make it all from scratch, and it still turned out amazing!
My cooking tragedies
I have made some pretty horrible cakes that sit in the fridge for days, completely untouched, and even shunned by our dog.
