I started 'cooking' when I got a crock pot for x-mas in 2002. I had been working in a restaurant as a cook and prep cook but at home I basically ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner. I met my husband and knew that sandwiches for dinner wasn't going to fly. So, I made a lot of slow cooked meals and eventually branched out to other meathods and styles.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking comfort foods. I like experimenting with sauces, marinades and rubs. I love throwing together a quick soup or stew on cold or rainy nights.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make a homemade lasagna every Halloween. (I make Worlds Best Lasagna from this site...so good)
My cooking triumphs
Cooked Thanksgiving for my entire family a couple years ago.
My cooking tragedies
I CANNOT, for some reason, make a decent grilled cheese sandwich. It irks me to no end!!!
