I had never really cooked until my second year of marriage when my husband and I got our own home. Up until then his Mother had done all the cooking. It was kind of scary to suddenly have that responsibility at first but even after the first time I made supper I knew that this was meant to be! I LOVE to cook! Something I thought I would never say, but I am so glad that I can say it now!! Never give up, it only gets better!
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely LOVE making cookies!! They are so easy and always a hit!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always loved making Christmas Cake with my Mom. She would lets all us kids take turns pouring in the different ingredients and stirring the batter in the HUGE silver bowl. I love you Mom.
My cooking triumphs
I seem to have a lot of luck (maybe it's skill) when it comes to salads and pasta. They always turn out perfect no matter what crazy things I put into them. Lately I have been using hemp hearts to replace to meats in my tomato sauces. My husband just can't get enough, and he's Italian and can get picky with his pasta!!
My cooking tragedies
My stirfrys are frightful!! They never turn out right no matter how close I follow a recipe. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong (how hard is it to make stirfry!) but the veggies are rubbery and the sauce is weak. I don't know but I think I'll stick to my pastas and salads, maybe even pasta salad!!
