I am a kitchen and bath designer who loves to bake and cook. I use my knowledge of how a kitchen should function for the serious cook to help me design kitchens that work!I had a short lived career making desserts for a very well known restaurant in Phila., and only quit 'cause I wasn't making any money.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, cookies, bread and tortes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breads, pies, cakes and cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I love to innovate. I almost never follow a recipe, so when I came up with an awesome pesto lasagne, I wanted to share it with friends.I rarely write anything down, so it was a challenge repeating it, but I did and boy did I make notes!
My cooking tragedies
I bought a very expensive natural briskit and cooked it to a dry shoe leather in a slow cooker. I followed a recipe! Yuk. I don't like meat much, so that is my weakest area.
