My husband and i recently moved from America to Ukraine. I love that I have to buy all my food products fresh from the market, but the options are limited or new to me; so I'm having to be creative and learn new recipes. It takes a lot of work, but it's fun.
My favorite things to cook
anything easy and full of flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When all of us work together - dad, husband, and brother around the grill. All the ladies inside working on different dishes. Cooking is not just about the food, it's about the relationships you develop during the mealtimes.
My cooking triumphs
learning to cook without canned products or mixes!
My cooking tragedies
ha! there have been a lot - burned pans, tasteless flops, mushy meals. Once I tried to make a couscous with tofu and chopped veggies. I made a huge batch enough for at least 12 people. It looked beautiful with all the diced vegetables. My husband and I took one bite, then went and ate McDonalds!
