I have a love/hate relationship with cooking and food. I love spicy, flavorful foods with a lot of veggies and a bit of lean meat. I despise pork and rarely cook with beef. I hate the focus our culture puts on food, when it is just fuel for our bodies. I don't have much time to cook and live alone, so I cook once a week and package up individual portions to reheat each day--so I have to cook foods I can enjoy for an entire week.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake loaf cakes and muffins, but unfortunately I currently have no oven :(
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up very poor, and my mom was a genius at stretching limited resources to make healthy, tasty meals--a skill I am proud to inherit!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs will be posted here, of course!
My cooking tragedies
I really don't have too many--except for the time when the rice in my casserole stayed crunchy because I didn't add enough water...
