I am recently married (October 2006) and have moved into a new house. One with an actual kitchen that is great for cooking. I am actually enjoying cooking now, however am still fairly new to it all.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things!! My husband's family is from Mexico so I am trying to learn how to make homemade salsa, tortillas and tamales.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Make enough to have left overs!! My Mom never knew how to cook for just the people at the table, and I have picked up the habit. Left overs are great for lunches at work and then a new dinner to sit down and enjoy with family every night.
My cooking triumphs
This year was my first to help cook Thanksgiving dinner and desserts. I actually baked a pecan pie with a homemade crust and it turned out great! Along with a fried turkey and casseroles. It was so much fun!!
My cooking tragedies
I am not quite the multi-tasker in the kitchen yet. If I have something boiling on the stove it never fails to boil over and make a huge mess...and even have gotten flames a couple times!
