Cooking and baking come are almost therapeutic to me. I love to cook with those I love in mind and make it a little extra special for them.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything. Favorites are fresh quality ingredients. A little off the beaten path for me lately is I've been experimenting with very simplified versions of my favorite recipes to get a collection of meals my family likes that we can keep the ingredients stored on hand and could live off of in times of emergency or disaster if necessary.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We prepare dinner and sit and eat dinner together at the dinner table. It's my favorite time of everyday. Many times the dinners are really simple.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime some one is happy because of eating something I've made. Makes me happy.
My cooking tragedies
Any time I'm trying to multitask, it's probaby not going to turn out how I hope. I find it's a good idea to really pay attention to be present and mindful of what I'm doing while I'm cooking.
