I have celiac disease, so the recipes I make have to be gluten free. I love trying to find new ways to make traditional recipes. Most foods can be easily converted to gluten free and still taste delicious! I've hosted several dinner parties where the entire menu was gluten free and no one suspected a thing! I have a husband and a todder who keeps me busy!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a huge food snob. I try to find recipes that are easy, but are over the top delicious at the same time. I love to cook classic American favorites like apple pie, although my favorite dish is chicken saltimbocca. It's the first dish that is truly my own. It's my husband's favorite too, which is a great excuse to make it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother always made fruitcake at christmas. I think I might carry on that tradition, even though I may be the only one eating it!
My cooking triumphs
I found the perfect apple pie recipe. It's the one that Martha Stewart made on Oprah. I don't tell anyone that it's Marth's recipe though. Shhh!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make bread for the first time last year and it came out hard as a rock. My mom commented that perhaps the yeast was too old. I replied "I was supposed to put yeast in it?" OOPS!
