Here is my e-mail address. kimbernic at live.com I wish there was a way to e-mail people on here when I see something I am interested in. In the mean time till we can message each other here is my e-mail. I am a mom who works full time yet I still try to make the time to feed my family well. I have incorporated cooking with my son. It gives us time together and I still feel like I am getting things done. I actually love to cook and for the most part it is relaxing for me. I also LOVE trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
I really don’t have a favorite thing to cook. I like a cooking challenge. I save those for Sundays. I have made elaborate recipes like cinnamon buns from scratch, home made perogis, and home made calzones. Now I am on the look out for something else fun to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not too many family cooking traditions come to mind but I did learn a thing or two from my Grandma. I will never forget the pie crust trick she showed me. When the pie crust is rolled out and you are ready to pick it up and put it on the pie pan just sprinkle a little flour on it and roll it up on the rolling pin half way. Then pick up the rolling pin with the crust rolled on it, place the loose edge on your pan and unroll. I was thrilled to share that with my husband's grandmother! I don’t have a problem with pie crusts anymore. As far as cooking traditions, I have been making my own as I go for my son. Homemade peppermint marshmallows in hot cocoa is a must at Christmas time now.
My cooking triumphs
Well, I have had quite a few since I found this web site! I am very comfortable trying high rated recipes for parties and get togethers. It is so nice to have such a large selection to try.
My cooking tragedies
Ok, one that did not turn out so well was a corned beef that was supposed to be cooked in beer with lots of garlic and peppercorns. Whooo, did I use the wrong beer! The house smelled awful and the corned beef was not that great. I am not a beer drinker so to me they were all the same. I learned the lesson that not all beer is the same.
