I am a budding writer. I have wonderful ideas but terrible grammar. I recently was told I had a large number of allergies now my cooking has taken on new meaning. I have so many!! The key work for me is moderation. My husband enjoys me re-learning how to cook as I have not found many bad ones on this site.
My favorite things to cook
I like to have the vegetable create the meal. Lots of veges from my garden define the dish. I love to cook new things and mix new flavors. I am not always successful but it is fun to try.
I enjoy preserving food from my garden. I attempt various different veges that are not found at the local stores to improve our dinner plates. Always and adventure.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a natural cook. She never measured she would smell the additions. She taught me to use spices she would mix some you would never expect. Her pasta dishes were excellent I have changed them up a bit but I never measure either(for sauces). One day I will write down the pasta dishes and share.
My cooking tragedies
A boyfriend I had when I was 21 Loved German Chocolate Cake. I wanted to make my first cake from scratch. I used self rising flour and added baking soda=( . I made the best frosting from scratch. Well the bubbling started and I hoped it would just bubble off and the remainer would taste good. Well the last time I opened the door I had a fire in the oven. For his birthday my boyfriend got to clean the fire baked German Chocolate Cake from the oven.
