I've always loved to cook and eat. I started cooking professionally at 14 and retired from the professional food business in my early 40's. I love a food challenge and I'm always ready to try a new recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my grandmothers was a great cook, and the other couldn't have cared less, but its her cookie recipe that I think of as our family heritage recipe.
My cooking tragedies
My son is the pickiest eater I know, and he's the only one home right now. He won't eat most of the wonderful food I make, preferring to eat anything that comes prepared frozen in a box.
