I've lived all over, so I have experienced all kinds of cooking. My mother was a pastry chef and cook for many years so I learned all I know from her and I love experimenting with any new recipe. I'm a new mom, but that hasn't stopped my cooking so far.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try out new recipes and change old ones into new styles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyday my mother made dinner and I love the dinnertime tradition of sitting around the table and sharing in one another's day.
My cooking triumphs
I made a sugar-free cheesecake, by altering my mom's recipe, for my father-in-law, who is diabetic. He hadn't had cheesecake in years and he loved it. Even my husband, whose favorite dessert is cheesecake couldn't tell the difference. (thank goodness for splenda)
My cooking tragedies
I bought an East Indian cookbook, in trying out two new recipes I overdid the spice measurements, because of that the odor in the house was so bad our eyes were watering and in the winter i had to open all of the doors and windows to clear it out.
