I like to experiment in the kitchen and cook with my 6-year old son.
I love tomatoes!
I can make great soup and chili, but so far, am a terrible baker. I'll keep trying.
My favorite things to cook
Soup. Anything with cheese and tomatoes (caprese, bruschetta, pasta). Huevos Rancheros. Thanksgiving dinner. Risotto. Anything with eggs. One-pot meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Using herbs and veggies from our family's gardens, eggs from my family's chickens and beef from my family's organic, grass-fed cattle ranch. Making Huevos Rancheros when we're on vacation. Getting help from my sous-chef, Jacob.
My cooking triumphs
Paella, cooked with The Hubster outdoors over an improvised fire pit/grill.
I once cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal without electricity. We were at our family's mountain "cabin" type house, and I used a woodburning stove, gas stove, and served by candlelight.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my baking attempts end in tragedy. I've dropped cakes on open oven doors, into mixing bowls of soapy water in the sink. I've had bread turn out as bricks. I usually get questionable results when I try to sub in healthier ingredients.
