Mom to 4. My favorite cookbooks are: Nourishing Traditions & Wild Fermentation.
We eat mainly traditionally as this is much healthier than all the new things that are on the market now. Therefore only natural things, lots of fermented foods etc.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional foods. I am totally annoying with the unscientific way that food has been condemned to be these days. Very sad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pancakes, poffertjes, apple pie.
My cooking triumphs
cortido, kimchi, sourdough bread, kefir, kombucha.
All things that I was unsure of that I could do, but they have all turned out great. Moving on on that level now as well.
In the meantime cooking beans from scratch has worked out well as well. I used the haybox to get that sorted and it was better than from a tin from the store, so total success with that these days as well.
My cooking tragedies
Fear of starting something new. Especially when it takes time.
