my cooking has transformed from feeding children @ home to creating healthy high impact meals for a variety of special needs. Examples include seniors, cancer patients, and now learning more about diabetes. My over all cooking style is "feed the body while feeding the soul". By combining BOTH, better mental and physical health can be much improved, while having so much fun.
My favorite things to cook
I like to include veggies in many forms. Some are hidden to boost the nutrition of those who eat very little (seniors) and those who choose to skip veggies often. I like simple make ahead meals as much as possible, but also love cooking with kids. They LOVE the "body and Soul" approach because the "good stuff" is always included in a way that they can get away with, by adding in a healthy touch
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love Love Love large family get together times and sharing family traditions while creating new traditions. I love cooking for others. I cook occasionally for a home away from home for families who have cancer.
My cooking triumphs
I taught my children , not only to cook, but to LOVE cooking. By age 12, my kids could make the entire Thanksgiving dinner on their own including all the pies.One such holiday, I was in the hospital, and could not be home. They did it all by themselves. It was amazing and the guests were might impressed. Today they are amazing "foodies" and their skills far exceed my own.
My cooking tragedies
Once I made beef Burgundy that was so bad my dog would not eat it. I was 12 then . In my teens I made a key Lime pie that the center did not set up ..It was a "juice" pie.
