I use to own a breakfast/lunch cafe, now I just enjoy cooking for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Large holiday meals, the more complex the menu, the better.
If there is one thing that challenges me, it's baking....I so wish I had the skills of my Grandmothers!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner....it's nice to bring out everyones favorite recipes and hear them say, "you made _____ for me!"
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my Grandmothers turkey and dressing recipe. Learning to line cook at my restaurant for 500+ people in a day and being able to keep up with the professionals
My cooking tragedies
Baking Christmas candies one year and having every receipe that contained chocolate turn into a disaster.....Thank goodness for cookies
