Christian. Wife. Mom. I love to cook but hate to clean. It limits my enthusiasm.
I'm slightly veg, eating poultry on holidays and fish once in a while.
My favorite things to cook
Pineapple upside down cake. Salmon. Quiche. Anything that involves a pressure cooker! I honestly love making chili from dried beans in an hour!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sugar cookies. Yeast buns and cinnamon rolls. Pizza.
My cooking triumphs
Almost everything I make turns out. But, I am impressed, as was everyone else with Martha Stewart's recommendation of adding bay leaves and salt under the skin of the turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Introducing one temperamental oven and a severely stubborn bird. I had started roasting a 15 pound turkey at 9 am-ish in a 350 degree oven, thinking it would be well done by 3ish...WRONG-O! That flippin' bird did not get done until 7:30 that night! No kidding.
