After being a "career woman" for 25 years, my job was outsourced, so now I am a homemaker with LOTS of time to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. Fresh, healthy foods are my favorites. I grill outside year round, even in the snow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to entertain, so I try to prepare as much as possible ahead of time so I am spending time with guests, not in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
The Hot Shrimp Salad with pineapple and blueberries found at this site was a HUGE hit with my family and friends at a birthday party for my son last year. They ask for it over and over!
My cooking tragedies
I was a "sub" at a gourmet club once and was asked to make fried ice cream. The pan I selected to deep fry the ice cream balls wasn't large enough, and it instantly boiled over and caught on fire!!! LOL! The hostess was quick on her feet and got it put out before any real harm was done, other than to my ego!
