Mom, wife, and teacher, in that order. Very happy person.
My favorite things to cook
Cozy food for winter days, cool treats for summer ones. Nobody beats my lasagna, or at least so says my son.
My cooking tragedies
In my new home, we had three Christmas dinners in a row ruined by poorly cooked turkeys. I realized I had not changed my recipe or style, and that I had 20+ years of turkey dinner success. The only change were my oven in the new house, and my roasting pan: a stainless steel version that had been a housewarming gift. I tossed out the pan, and went back to the old-fashioned black enamel roaster like I had always used. The next turkey dinner was excellent!
