I have always had an interest in cooking and trying new recipes and techniques. I enjoy reading, movies and music as well, but cooking is my passion. I love to put on some music, pour a glass of wine and prepare a wonderful meal for my family. Seeing my family and friends enjoy the food I've prepared is such a joy.
My favorite things to cook
Anything really. I have my tried and true favorites, but enjoy trying new things as well. I like to tweak recipes and make them my own. I love to cook for friends and family and see them enjoy thier food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess it has to be my Grandmothers carrot cake. This is something that has been on family holiday tables for 3 generations. My husband, who said he didn't like carrot cake when we were dating, changed his mind after tasting mine.It is now his favorite! The recipe can be found on this site. (Grandma's carrot cake)
My cooking triumphs
I consider anything that I cook or bake, that is well received by myself and others to be a triumpth.
My cooking tragedies
I roasted my first Thanksgiving turkey with the bag of innards still in the turkey! So embarrising!
