About Me
I am a 39 year old fat girl from Pennsylvania. I was born hungry and have had a love/hate relationship with food from the get go! I love it and I hate that I love it so much!!!! I am happily married to a picky eater, so my challenges are great in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
My FAVORITE thing to cook? Toss up between 2 things... THANKSGIVING - The whole She-bang and PARTY FOOD!!!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is originally from Luxembourg so a lot of what I grew up with was influenced by her home country, France and Germany.
My cooking triumphs
I couldn't make fried chicken for the LONGEST TIME!!!! I finally, thanks to my coworkers, took two of their recipes and adapted it to the BEST recipe to make breaded chicken breast for chicken parm! YUM!!!! :)
My cooking tragedies
Ohhhhh I have had MANY a failed experiment in cooking, but you can't learn if you don't try! Baking (like dessert baking) is not my forte and never laid claim to try!
