I love to cook for my family and friends. I enjoy finding the best recipes and going to great lengths to have a good dinner party. I love Allrecipes!!
My favorite things to cook
I love quick and easy dishes. I love legumes and saucy-stew type dishes. Things with a Caribbean flare always catch my eye too. I am open to any country's cuisine and want my family to explore every fruit, vegetable and to keep their dinners delicious and exciting and yet still have the comfort of Mom's cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom loved to cook. Her mom loved to cook. The heart of the home was the kitchen and I love this tradition. Baking, roasting, grilling, stir-frying...you name it, bring it on!
My cooking triumphs
Having a huge dinner party come out successfully with people raving about the dishes. That is a cooking success.
My cooking tragedies
Just this week I was working on my team's soccer line up. I thought I had everything going so well. Burgers on the grill, homemade fries in the oven...but I forgot in the midst or concentrating on my line-up. I burned all the burgers to a crisp!
