I am a nurse , but have been disabled for about 15 years. I have one disabled son. before being disablesd I loved to cook, that didn't change. I just learned to modify recipes so that they would be easy to make. I am always looking for new cooking gadgets to make cooking easier. My most recent purchase was a modern pressure cooker!
My favorite things to cook
fish, lamb, salsads, and of course desserts. Always trying to make them healthier that when I grew up. Whole grains, lots of legume (diabetes, metabolic syndrome) and love to bake. most recently have added WheyLow to my baking strategy with wonderful succes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. We had that for every holiday meal and special occasions. My Dad's best meal. I didn't learn to cook from him, but in spite of him!! But what I did learn from him was to have fun and that cooking is not an exact science (though baking is more so and that became my forte).
My cooking triumphs
Several Blue Ribbons at the Minnesota State Fair (and a red and yellow, too_ Put the first no sugar jam recipe ever at the fair and won a Blue Ribbon!! Also specialty recipes for various specialty diets.
My favorite? English Trifle at a British food Contest which won first prize!!
My cooking tragedies
So many how do you count them? Bread has been the worst. Still not very good at it even with a bread machine.
