I work for a community service agency that specializes in helping families.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook just about anything. The only thing that would prevent me from making a dish is if an ingredient is too expensive or if in our small town of Tucson it is not available.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably during Thanksgiving . . . I would be allowed to peel potatoes. But I love my grandma's stuffing, it is the best.
My cooking triumphs
I used to bake a lot. I usually try recipes and I haven't actually written down my favorites. One recipe that I really enjoyed and went well was from my cooking light magazines. Pork and peaches, White Pizza, Grilled Chicken and watermelon salsa.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making this dense french chocolate cake and all was well until my oven just turned off on me and the cake didn't cook it all the way through. Boo!
I also made Persimmon pudding not realizing that baking soda amount was too much and boo, it came out like an alkaselzer tab.
