About this Cook
Just starting out, and I'm really loving cooking. I think we need to go back to a society of homemade meals with real food, grown locally. I think the dinner table is a great place to bring a family together every day.
My favorite things to cook
My husband is away a lot for work so I love when he comes home and I cook all the things I've practiced while he was away.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from 2 working parents so meals we usually something frozen from a box or can, lots of M&M Meat Shops stuff, too.
My cooking triumphs
Indian Butter Chicken...aced it the first time! Chicken Pot Pie!!! Anything I change to 'make my own' and it turns out :)
My cooking tragedies
Let's NOT talk about these!

Potato, Parsnip, and Cabbage Soup
Didn't mind the flavors but I think half the cabbage and a little more potato and parsnip next time. Also, using a potato masher instead of using a food processor made for a nice texture.
