I first learned to cook when I was hired to work in a local grocery store deli & after a year became the cook, then the deli manager, with an emphasis on catering.
My favorite things to cook
Soups & one pot dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my Mom's homemade dressing on Thanksgiving from her step by step hand-written recipe that talks about having the children help tear up the bread!
My cooking triumphs
Able to make beautiful meat, cheese & vegetable trays. Dissecting dishes at restuarants & duplicating at home, such fun!
My cooking tragedies
Prep! My husband LOVES to chop up the veggies, so we work as a tag team in the kitchen. We both have different cooking styles, so instead of fighting about whose is best, we've learned who's best at what.
