I have been married since May 2007 and have always had outdoor charcoal grills at all of my apartments, so we learned to grill pretty well. Then we moved to Texas and now we don't have a grill (aren't allowed to at an apartment) and I feel like I'm having to start from scratch with my recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Sweets (cookies, brownies and cakes) and anything quick and easy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sundays with a roast in the crock pot using McCormick Roast Seasoning and Brown Gravy Mix.
Banana pudding using JELLO Vanilla pudding.
See, nothing from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
I found a recipe on here "Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup" and have made it my own and its a "must have" at Christmas when visiting family.
My cooking tragedies
I burnt queso dip because I decided to try to cook it on the skillet instead of the microwave or in a crockpot and I burned layer after layer of cheese onto the bottom of the pot and by the time I was done the queso tasted like burnt popcorn. Yuck!
