My husband loves anything I make. He really appreciates it and would never say a negative thing about anything I make. It makes me want to try new things!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, sushi, just about any dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make my mother's "Trash" at the holidays. It's made with Bugles, rice chex, nuts, etc., but the secret ingredient is bacon grease. Worcestershire sauce and Tobasco sauce make it spicy. It is labor intensive, but it is a holiday tradition and so worth it. No other Trash recipe I've tasted even comes close to how good my mother's recipe is!
My cooking triumphs
After lots of practice, I make an awesome pecan praline, and I've gotten pretty good at sushi rolls. I learned how to make the inside-out rolls from watching YouTube videos! If you like to make rolls and want to make them pretty like the rolls you get in a sushi bar, try YouTube!
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies are mostly my fault. When something has come out wrong, I go back to the recipe and I've done something wrong or left something out.
