My favorite things to cook
I love making appetizers. Taste is crucial but presentation is critical.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother used to tell stories about surviving the depression and the answer to the food shortage was always potatoes. She would say, "Throw some more potatoes in the pot!" when unexpected guests arrived.
My cooking triumphs
I make a Schnitzel dinner that is to die for. Everyone loves it.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cheesy, tuna, dill weed casserole thing once and NO ONE liked it. Even the dog wouldn't eat it!
