I'm a technical writer in Denver, Colorado. I have been cooking for family on and off since I was about twelve. The thing I like doing best is making everything from scratch; it's cheaper, you know wha't in there, and usually tastes better.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything Italian! I love home made pizza, Stromboli, lasagna, spagetti and so on.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mostly just getting together for dinner on the big holidays - the dinner and being together is the most important part. It's the best part of Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Pizza! It took a while to get that right. I was setting the smoke alarm off every time for months (made it about once a week). Thanks to the show Good Eats, I finally figured out what I was doing wrong with the dough.
