I don't cook as much as I would like to, as I work full time and have a 2 hour commute, so I look to allrecipes for the quick meals, but occasionally I dive into a recipe to challenge me and show my family that I can cook more than mac-n-cheese!!
My favorite things to cook
My families favorite is my Chicken Fried Chicken, I make it with country gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. It's a very involved meal and gets all the burners hoppin' but well worth it!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Teaching my son to cook from a very early age. He loved to be in the kitchen with me and some of our best memories are cooking together.
My cooking triumphs
While living in Florida, I discovered Mahi-Mahi (dolphin fish) and I fell in love with it. Being back in Minnesota, it was hard to find, but I finally found it at my local grocery store, I brought it home, went onto Allrecipes and found a margarita mahi-mahi recipe, that with one of my favorite recipes, the sauteed garlic asparagus, and some garlic white and wild rice on the side, with a glass of wine, it was absolutely to die for!!! My husband couldn't say he loved it enough! Thanks to everyone at allrecipes, you made me look like a seasoned chef!!
My cooking tragedies
Please don't ask me to make anything having to do with bread! I put the rolls in the oven at Thanksgiving, and forgot about them, a disaster! The worst was forgetting about the garlic bread, I opened the broiler pan to tiny, black, flaming hockey pucks!!
