i Love to cook! I love to explore different tastes, smells and textures. I love learning about other cultures' foods and how to cook them. I've been cooking since I was eight and my aunt taught me the delights of spices an herbs and the subtleties of sauces. I love finding new ways to cook familiar things.
My favorite things to cook
My stuffed mushrooms, for a crowd. Just for me, I love to make my spinach feta pilaf or my honey feta noodles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday mornings at our cabin my dad wuiold make omlettes, or my mom would make pancakes - a.k.a."bamcakes". My family's salad dressing has turned ranch-only eaters into oil nad vinegar lovers and snickerdoodles.
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own alfredo sauce from a terribly bland base! Making a killer spinach-feta-artichoke-mushroom pizza. And my honey feta noodles.
My cooking tragedies
Making a terribly bland alfredo sauce. And bread.I can't make yeast bread to save my life.
