I taught art for many years and, while I'm still a painter, have been focusing and moved my creative energy from the canvas to the plate. Making memories with great meals is a huge part of family tradition.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook French and Italian foods but hope to never limit myself to one style. Recently, I've begun studying the science of food and it's renewed my enthusiasm in a big way.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm blessed with a family that has a rich tradition in good cooks. Each holiday is special, with traditional fare on Thanksgiving. On Christmas Eve we enjoy foods one would associate with summer. Without a doubt, it's my favorite meal of the year.
My cooking triumphs
Creating recipes always brings the chance of a success and something that becomes a tradition.
My cooking tragedies
Creating recipes always brings the chance of failure and something you throw away rather than eat! :)
