I never used to like to cook and my twin sister did. Then about 10 years ago I just started to love to cook! I just got married. I guess it's true - the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Now I am teaching my daughter to cook! How fun! I hope she loves it as much as I do some day!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying different things. Polenta, cous cous, greek, paella, thai. I love making pasta. My husband is a huge meat & potato fan. I really like trying all different kinds of recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up we had dinner every night at 5:00. Now that I am grown and have my own kids, it makes you really appreciate it! How did my mom do it? She is an amazing woman! I still make her dishes to this day! Total comfort food! Boiled dinner, mac n cheese, veg beef soup, hot dishes, spaghetti. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
I've always made good lasagne & chinese food. I've always liked trying new things and then improving on them. Cheesy potatoes, dill potatoes, crab legs, asparagus & pasta, etc.
My cooking tragedies
My only problem is that I always make way too much of something. Since we don't eat a lot of leftovers - I am working on making smaller portions of the things that I make.
