Terri Lyons, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Terri Lyons has tested.

Terri Lyons

Terri recalls her first food memory from the age of six, helping her babysitter make her favorite dish, Kraft Dinner. Family meals during her early years were not great culinary experiences (pre-packaged meals, 12-hour roasts with frozen pre-chopped onions, canned potatoes, and carrots, etc.). It was not until she moved into her first apartment that Terri’s food journey truly began. It was then that she fell in love with fresh produce and discovered that cooking (both the act and the result) could be a pleasure rather than a chore.  Discovering cookbooks could reveal many secrets and so her collection began. Many books have been lost during numerous moves but it has been growing again, albeit with a greater degree of selectivity. Terri now thoroughly enjoys trying new recipes and has acquired a taste for an eclectic range of foods and cooking techniques.
