I have traveled extensively and picked up a lot of recipes and cooking tips from all over the world. I live in Kansas City, MO now and I am working on my BBQ! I enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends. I love live music and stand-up comedy shows.
My favorite things to cook
I like things with spice! I love to experiment with cooking different ethnic foods. I will try to tackle anything....and I have gotten in over my head some times! Cooking should be fun, so if I don't enjoy making something, I won't!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother never was a big cook. I learned a lot from watching my grandma, she was a soul / southern cook. I still haven't mastered many of her recipes, as she kept most of them in her head and cooked mostly from memory and impulse.
My cooking triumphs
What I considered my first real dinner party. I was nervous....did I plan the correct menu, would everyone like it....would there be enough? It was a huge success and I was literally glowing from the compliments.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had a real tragedy yet....knock on wood!
