Cooking for people who love to eat fuels my soul and one of my favorite things in this world is seeing my dining room table surrounded by friends and family laughing, eating and enjoying one another’s company in a way that our fast-paced, technology-driven world allows less and less frequently.
In addition to cooking, I also enjoy travelling with my husband (who is a great cook and an amazing amateur tour guide and planner), reading (both fiction and non-fiction), and kayaking. After working for several years both the private sector and in state government, I have been richly blessed - by both a loving God and a flexible husband - with the freedom to pursue my passion for cooking, eating and entertaining!
My favorite things to cook
Whatever I am cooking at the moment. I love to try things I haven't made or eaten before and to put my own spin on other people's recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The feast of the 7 fishes for Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to list.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. The most memorable is probably the first time I cooked for my in-laws and my entire apartment filled up with smoke!
