I have a husband, 14 chickens and a cat, and we all live happily on two acres in the California High Desert.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook. Period. Some of favorite ethnic foods to cook are Asian and Italian. I'm also pretty good at low-fat/low-cal cooking. It all hinges on finding that really great recipe. I need to watch my sodium intake, so lately I've been looking for great low-sodium recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, the family gets together and we each contribute a homemade dish to the holiday meal. Luckily, everyone in my family is a pretty decent cook!
My cooking triumphs
One Christmas I made a pumpkin bread pudding with caramel sauce for dessert. One of my sisters loved it so much that she actually *stole* the leftovers and took them home with her.......not that I wouldn't have given them to her if she had asked.....but that was the best compliment I've ever received.
My cooking tragedies
One time I was having the family over for dinner and as I was carrying a big pot of food from the stove to the kitchen counter, I accidently tipped the pot and all of the food went SPLAT all over the floor.
