I mostly garden in the summer. Winter time is my time to really cook. I love learning about new dishes. My husband and I have two grown daughters and two lovely granddaughters. I also love skin care, jewelry and helping others. We love to travel when possible and are avid movie buffs.
My favorite things to cook
I especially love Italian food. Just recently have been learning new baking skills with fresh baked bread with my new Kitchenaid mixer... new pasta attachments are on the way..Yeah! Soups are a passion with me and I consider myself an expert in this arena. Love to learn new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Soups, Abruzzi, Gazpacho, and our familys' version of Goulash.
My cooking triumphs
Most recently my homemade French bread from scratch.. no breadmaker; even though I own one.
