My husband and I love to have dinner parties. We have 20 couples who come to dinner at least 4 times a year. I am retired and have lots of time to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I like baking cheesecakes, casseroles and any interesting new recipe I can find. I have more than 100 cookbooks, but find it is much easier and faster to check out Allrecipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister is also a gourmet cook, and we each cook every other holiday. I always cook Thanksgiving and she cooks Christmas dinner.
My cooking triumphs
One of my recipes was featured in the Baltimore Sun years ago. Our friends always ask for my recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I have to garnish my cheesecakes because some of them crack.
