I live in a beautiful N. Calif (coastal) town called McKinleyville. I live with my husband, our daughter (last child of 4)and our beagles. I work in the healthcare industry as an office manager.
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything. I love cooking Thai and Italian...But I'll always try to make something new no matter what part of the world it is from.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having relaxing holiday meals. I hate that it takes nearly all day to make a feast then only 20 minutes to eat it!!! So I like to have a relaxing day of snacks and wine and then have a casual dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that comes out tasting good is a triumph for any cook...
My cooking tragedies
I try to block these from my mind...Think only HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL thoughts while cooking!
