My favorite things to cook
Anything with a tomato base. I can tomatos every summer and love to cook with them or eat them right out of the jar! I am trying to cook healthier meals and love experimenting with vegetable dishes. When I do serve meat, it is usually something basic such as roasted chicken, pot roast or grilled fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eggplant lasagna for Thanksgiving!
My cooking triumphs
I have several dishes, such as creamed spinach, that start with the same basic ingredients. I then create variations and morph them into something entirely different. It's fun to experiment and make new things with traditional recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Too many too count! For some reason, I always seem to have trouble with beef.
