My favorite things to cook
Any roasted meat, whole roasted chicken is a specialty. I love to bake, but I'm not very good at it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad's chili, my grandma's banana bread, and my aunt's microwave peanut brittle and microwave caramels. I love to cook a nice Thanksgiving dinner too!
My cooking triumphs
I just made my first sabayon and it was outstanding. My coworkers think I cook hard to make food.
My cooking tragedies
How about the New Year's Eve I attempted a bone-in rib roast? I bought it a month before and froze it. Took it out of the freezer and into the fridge a week before to thaw. Before I put it in the oven that night my probe read 32 degrees, but I put it in anyway! Stupid me, after 3 hours in the oven the roasts center was still 32 degrees and I had people over. I had to cut the roast and grill it into steaks because it wasn't cooking! So embarrassing!
