I have two precious children, Danielle and Christopher. My children are 9 and 3 and keep me happily busy. My family has a history with food (my dad, grandparents, uncles, and great uncles all owned restaurants)...Maybe one day I will, too.
My favorite things to cook
Meat sauce and marinara sauce. I should submit my meat sauce recipe...but, I'm like Rachel Ray where I "eyeball" everything and just haven't written it down...I should, though!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma passed down her homemade macaroni and cheese recipe to me. She taught me how to make it just before she passed away, and now everyone wants me to make "Gramma's macaroni" because I'm the only one who knows how to make it. I'm so glad she and I were able to do that together!!! What a great memory for me.
My cooking triumphs
Created my own recipe for spicy curried pork loin with coconut milk. I LOVE IT :) My dad, who's a fantastic cook, really liked it, too.
My cooking tragedies
Souffles...they're impossible. I'm also a horrible baker. I use boxed cake mix and boxed brownie mix whenever possible. I've been known to clog some garbage disposals, as well.
