I have always enjoyed cooking, since I was a little girl. I especially love to bake.
My favorite things to cook
During the summer, I love to grill flank steak, chicken and pork tenderloin. Winter time is perfect for chilis, and hearty soups and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma always made Poppy Seed rolls for Christmas, and my mother always took care of the Prime Rib holiday dinner. I have yet to host my own Christmas dinner, but I'll be ready when it's finally my turn!
My cooking triumphs
Any time I get a genuine compliment from friends or strangers about my cooking is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Any time my dog jumps up on the counter and eats my freshly baked dessert.
