My favorite things to cook
we moved recently from Minneapolis to a small town in Mn (population 747) while there is a grocery store it carries little by way of non traditional spices so my cooking has to be, most days, simple.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My whole family cooks.. mom,aunts, grandmas etc. My mom is very accomplished gourmet cook and my aunt (who is very influential) is a great traditional cook. My grandmother could cook for a month it seemed from a turkey carcass or ham bone!
My cooking triumphs
I have no fear of attempting the cover of Bon Appetit. I did an awesome orange water, white chocolate and fruit cake. I've also done some BBQ ribs which involved brining the ribs for several days and the BBQ sauce had guava and pear nectar in it. They were good!
My cooking tragedies
I once did some BBQ ribs which involved brining them...yeah same ribs... walking them to the grill they were dropped!! we brushed off the dirt and threw them on the barbie not giving it a second thought!!
