Single mother who is just begining to take an interest in cooking and has learned alot from this website. Have one son in college who will eat anything I make.....but is enjoying food more now since I get all my recipes from here! It helps that you get to read all the good and bad before you try making it yourself!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with less than 5 steps , that may be the ADHD speaking :)
Anything baked or with syrup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I make a Filipino dish that she learned in Manila called Lumpia. it takes all day, but it's wonderful. and her homemade lasagna, I don't like to tackle big cooking jobs like that by myself, so I con my mom into making it and help.
My cooking triumphs
I made Creme Brulee French Toast on Christmas eve. (cooked it in the am) It started out just an idea to give my mom a break from having to do breakfast Christmas morning. The entire family loved it! They can't believe I made it. I've made it 3 times since, yumm!!
The scones I've just made recently 3 versions, are amazing :+)
My cooking tragedies
Any kind of meat on a bone. I don't know WHY I can't make Fried Chicken! My grandmother made the best, but we can't read her recipe, and she has Alzheimers, so the recipe is stuck in her head :(
