I am an attorney who wishes she went to culinary school! Kentucky is my home, but I also spend a substantial amount of time in Indianapolis. I enjoy cooking, food, wine, horses, fashion, and all things Southern. I mix indulgent recipes and healthy dishes in my kitchen since I am training for my first modern pentathlon. You can check out my blog at http://wannabemodernpentathlete.blogspot.com/.
My favorite things to cook
Anything pumpkin! I love pumpkin and spice flavors. I could eat seafood every day. When it's cold, I love cheese. Mac and cheese, grilled cheese, fresh grated cheese on soup...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Russian grandmother made chicken and dumpling soup that was instant comfort. My mom makes delicious lasagna.
My cooking triumphs
Winning the fair bake off multiple times.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping a flourless chocolate torte as I was putting it into the oven. It went everywhere! I think there's probably still some batter in the cracks of my oven door or somewhere under my counters. Not to mention, that batter had a lot of high dollar chocolate in it!
