My favorite things to cook
At home: stir-fries, meatloaf, roasts, as well as red beans and rice and soups. I love to make fresh bread and rolls.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always host a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for our family, in-laws and cousins with turkey, dressing, home-made breads and pies. Summer barbecues are another favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Surviving 5 weeks on the road cooking for my son's drum corps in 2005. 135 ravenous young men and 35+ volunteers four meals a day over 6000 miles was a challenge, but watching the boys in green on the field every night made it all worth it!
My cooking tragedies
Ouch! Burned a large spiral sliced ham for the faculty Christmas party.
