I'm a busy mother of 3 kids. I love to cook (and wish I had more time to do it) but these days I rely on quick and easy menus.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake and am especially interested in perfecting recipes that represent my Hungarian heritage.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Over the years I've been faithful to old family favorites for the holidays and now my family expects them at holiday time. No matter how simple or monotonous, my kids and husband aren't very adventurous...just the old standards!
My cooking triumphs
Working as a director with The Pampered Chef, teaching cooking classes for "Apples of Gold," upholding the family tradition of a sit-down family dinner each night and learning to make the ethnic recipes of my youth. Also, I'm proud of the fact that I can make a terrific pie...especially the crust!
My cooking tragedies
My earliest cooking tragedies as a teenager are my most memorable, most notably a lemon meringue pie with crust that had to be 1/2" thick. My dad ate it anyway and told me it was great (bless his heart)!
