My journey in terms of cooking started when we had our son Spencer in May '06. We like to have family dinners together, and its always fun introducing our son to new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make mexican food, guacamole, black beans and rice, etc. I'm a vegetarian so beans play a huge role in my daily cooking. I'm always looking for new and delicious ways to incorporate them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a full time career woman, so she didn't have a whole lot of time to cook...however, she always made a mean Thanksgiving turkey and a great pot of spagetti.
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin pie at this year's Thanksgiving!! I tweaked the recipe I found and added some almond, everyone loved it! AND the homemade black bean veggie burgers I just made a few days ago! Served them with some chipotle mayo that I made and they were to die for!
My cooking tragedies
Both of the white cakes I have tried this past year have been very unattractive looking and somewhat dry. I need some definite work on my baking skills.
