I've always enjoyed cooking *(or trying to!) but its tough when you're single since most recipes are for at least 2or more people. I've been in a great relationship for a year and a half now, so I try all kinds of recipes I would have been nervous to experiment with. Luckily my boyfriend is very supportive and will try anything!
My favorite things to cook
I love my homemade beef stew, and meatloaf is a quick easy favorite for the cold Chicago winters!
My cooking tragedies
I decided to change my favorite beef stew recipe. A friend recommended I use Guiness instead of beef broth, problem was, I still used all the usual ingrediants & spices. Guiness doesnt mix well with certain things *(like sherry cooking wine), so the stew was practically inedible! I learned my lesson, ask detailed questions when someone recommends a change to YOUR recipe!!
