My favorite things to cook
I'm an expert at leftovers and last minute throw-togethers. I used to love cooking with fresh ingredients and making exotic dishes before we bought our money pit - The House From He11. Now I'm more concerned with squeezing every penny from each dollar I can. So. Beans, rice, and leftover beans and rice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a horrible cook. There are no traditions except gray meat and squishy vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
Recently I made a quiche from leftovers that stunned both me and my husband. It. Was. Fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
Are many. I experiment like mad. Failure happens when you do this. So do fantastic dishes from unexpected ingredients.
