I joined this website long ago but wasn't on it much to begin with, and now I'm practically here daily so thought I'd better fill out about myself ;) I'm an Irish native living in Jersey to an Italian-Irish guy with a great mother in law. It inspired me to cook and learn more, especially more so since buying and moving into our new home 2 years ago. Now I'm pretty confident in the kitchen, but still consider myself a long way to go being an expert!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook fish, vegetables and using different fresh ingidents because I live nearby an awesome grocery store. I cook a variety of cuisines such as Italian, asian, comfort food, and love grilling!
My cooking triumphs
I had 33 people over my house this past Xmas for Xmas eve dinner where I made leg of lamb and ham with all the sides to accompany the mains. I wanted a new twist to the old classics such as green beans, sweet potatoes, and salad. I used some of the sides from AR to wow my family, including the awesome eggnog recipe!
My cooking tragedies
oooooh. Baking! I have tried and burned so many times before that I've gotten an irrational fear with dough and yeast LOL But my husband surprised me with a great food processor where it makes and knead dough! Have yet to tackle it yet....
