I am a 52 year old female. My Parents both worked while I was growing up. My sister and I were in charge of having dinner on the table. I have 2 daughters who can barely boil water. My fault....no patience. My husbsnd and I grow a garden every year so we can eat as fresh as possible. It seems to be leaning more towards a salsa garden these days. We also grow most of our own herbs.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food with a zing to it. I'll try just about anything new that sounds good, and a bit spicy
My favorite family cooking traditions
I complain about it a lot, but I love the Thanksgiving thing..especially when it is all done, and everyone is sitting down to eat.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti sauce. I make a HUGE pot and freeze in ziplock bags in varying amounts. I then use them as needed for lasagna, manacotti whatever, making changes as needed. I also make a mean salsa! Not to bad with the gravy either.
My cooking tragedies
Way to many to mention!!!! There have been many times when I was embarassed to say that I made the dish.
