I love to cook. I love looking at recipes for ideas, but hardly ever follow one line by line. I really don't believe in measuring either! Ha, ha! I often get rather inventive with my cooking which is fun, but creates difficulty in reproducing a certain dish (especially when I don't measure). When I carry-in food for functions, I get complements but rarely can give a recipe when asked for one.
My favorite things to cook
Soups and all kinds of sauces are among my favorites. I think that is because both are fairly forgiving and allow wiggle room for my inventiveness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always baked cookies with my mom and love involving my kids, especially at the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I cook anything that the 2 year old, 5 year old, and picky husband agree on as being good! I am even fairly proud when I get "pretty goods"!
