I am just a small town girl. My mother never taught me how to cook. However my best friend was taught by her mother. She experimented with food all the time. I would ask her how she did it. The answer was always a shrug and a casual "just by tasting it."
My favorite things to cook
Steak, green beans, breads, cookies (although I can never remember to check on the cookies)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The ones that I will create with my children
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook. Fixing a steak so amazing everyone always gets that "look".
My cooking tragedies
burning dozens upon dozens of cookies
