I'm a happily married mother of two who works full time in professional services.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make savory dishes - any way that I can take ordinary ingredients and create dishes that please.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was from Austria, so I like to carry on with that heritage by making my own version of her dishes, including a hearty holiday meal with beef rouladen as the centerpiece.
My cooking triumphs
I figure it is a triumph anytime I put a meal on the nightly dinner table that everyone likes.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make cherry gelatin using a shaker one time. Do you know what happens when you put hot liquid in a container and shake it? I had cherry gelatin all over my white kitchen cabinets!
