Inherited my joy of cooking from my mom--When she died, I was willed her collection of 6 huge boxes of well-worn cookbooks!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with herbs and interesting spices. It's all about the flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm the quick & easy cook in the family. My husband is the slow & methodical cook. On weekends, we spend hours in the kitchen--he's cutting up veggies for stew, I'm planning quick weeknight meals.
My cooking triumphs
I can take a few basic food items from the pantry or icebox and make a delicious, nutritious meal.
My cooking tragedies
When I was first married at 19, I would barbecue chicken on the hibachi grill. It was burnt on the outside and raw on the inside!
