I am 41, married to the most wonderful guy in the world and have a fab stepson and four dogs. They all seem to like most anything I make for them! Honestly, the dogs are the pickiest ones of all!
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything! I like using the crock pot for brisket and pot roast and I especially love cooking Jewish food, my moms recipes are the best, sweet and sour meatballs, chicken soup with matzah balls, roast chicken, matzah meal stuffing, kasha varnishkas, brisket, noodle kugel... there is so much!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays, especially Passover. Lots of people think that food at Passover is not good but they are so wrong! Cooking for holidays with my mom is definitely my favorite tradition. She is teaching me all of her secrets.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made my moms brisket recipe but did it in the crock pot. We had my husbands uncle and family over for dinner. Made him brisket and kasha - he could not stop eating and the next day he called his family in NJ and told them that I make a "mean" brisket. It felt wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
I have tried three times to make my moms chocolate bundt cake recipe and every single time it sticks to the pan and comes out a total mess! Baking is not my specialty...
