Now that my husband and I are retired, we have really been enjoying cooking meals together...well he does the grilling and I do the rest :-). We especially love cooking and entertaining outdoors and living in Central Florida enables us to do that all year long. We have two grills and a smoker and have tried just about everything on a grill at least once.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat and cook just about anything, but would have to say Mexican food is my passion...nice and spicy. However, I love colorful food, with lots of fresh veggies, so anything I can get a bunch of fresh herbs and veggies in will be on my menu.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We did a lot of camping when our boys were growing up and all of us sitting around the open fire pit cooking dinner are my fondest of memories. Even though most people would say Thanksgiving dinner is their favorite family cooking tradition, I still have to say I enjoy the relaxation of backyard BBQ's with the family...and you can do that more than once a year!
My cooking triumphs
I've never burnt the house down.
My cooking tragedies
I've never really had the so called sweet tooth...I'm a cook not a baker. So most my tragedies usually involve baking something.
