I love cooking for other people. Lately I'm doing a lot of recipes in my food processor and learning to use its million attachments I have for it. I also use the slow cooker sometimes to switch things up.
My favorite things to cook
Soup, cookies, dessert breads, dips, stir-frys, salads, pasta.
Anything that is not "meat and potato like." Always open to trying new things.
I cook with tons of fresh garlic and extra spice. I will find a way to add as much hot sauce to any recipe I can.
I am not into cutting corners, though it might help speed things up if I were, I like taking the long route.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmm. Probably my mother's pies and homemade bread. We didn't have store-bought bread at home and the house always had yummy desserts.
My cooking triumphs
Creme brulee, leek soup, squash lasasgna, chili, tacos, seafood cobb salad, chicken marsala, curry chicken, risotto (any kind), hot and sour soup, shrimp fried rice. Finding anything that is healthy that will children will try!
