I started cooking when my husband was diagnosed w/cancer. He's OK now, but we're sticking with fresh food.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables (except green peas) are my favorite things to cook & my favorite place in the grocery store. Also enjoy cooking soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I baked a sponge cake w/whipped cream frosting for my husband's birthday the first year we were married. That was 28 years ago. These days he insists on 2 birthday cakes: birthday & post-birthday!
My cooking triumphs
Well, my husband's birthday cake would qualify as a triumph.
He also loves the way I stir-fry & roast vegetables.
My cooking tragedies
We don't like nuts, and some of my substitutions (raisins, fried onions, chips, etc.) have been real tragedies!
