I like easy to make, tasty dishes and trying to make things out of what I have on hand. Once in a while I like to go out on a limb and try making something that's a little out of my comfort zone.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I haven't done much in the way of creating my own recipes, usually I start from someone elses then put my own spin on it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Turkey Chili with roasted Hatch Chiles!
My cooking tragedies
When I first moved to Texas I moved from a house with a gas oven to one with an electric one. Something about it, I must have ruined 3 or 4 batches of cookies before I got the baking times right.
