I love to cook, especially for company. I am famous for trying something "new" on my victims! I believe fresh herbs can take any recipe to a new level. Searching for new and interesting recipes is one of my favorite activities.
My favorite things to cook
All things chicken - it's so forgiving. I enjoy grilling out of the ordinary things such as goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto. I also enjoy putting together cheese platters and pairing my selections with a good compatible wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for my birthday, my mom makes me stuffed cabbage rolls - I have personally never made them and won't as there's no way they would be as good!
My cooking triumphs
Any dinner that makes it to the table hot but not burned is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Sugar cookies minus the sugar - oops. Mole sauce...ugh.
