I have been married since 1995 I have two children. I love everything about food from growing it, to cooking it, to reading about it to shopping for it and especially eating it. My focus is now on eating healthy.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook Sunday dinner with all the trimmings. I also like to try new foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with my daughter. We love to bake cookies, cakes and pies. We usually end up giving away more than we eat because we would eat everything in a few days. We do a lot of baking during the holidays and everyone looks forward to our cookies, sweet potato pie and coconut cake.
My cooking triumphs
My daughter requested a checker board cake for her birthday. I was a little nervous because each time I attempt to make the batters run together and the presentation is ruined. The cake I baked for her birthday was perfect. Friends couldn't believe I baked it myself.
My cooking tragedies
I live in Maryland and a summer is not official until we have feasted on crabs. We usually drive across the Bay bridge and get a bushel of crabs at least once each summer. Once I got the bright idea to steam my own. Bad idea. A crab jumped out of the pot and crawled all over the kitchen.
