About Me
I am a full time cook at Ottawa Township High School. I love allrecipes.com for giving us "Foodies" a place to gather. I have wonderful friends however, not many of them share this passion for food like the people I meet here. E-mail me: buffiona@msn.com
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things, especially ethnic foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving of course and baking at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
After 15 years I finally got an old family cookie recipe right this last year, the recipe went to the grave.
My cooking tragedies
