I enjoy cooking new recipes and find it a challenge to make good food that people enjoy...but it's healthier version! I will always sneek in turkey where it calls for ground beef and applesauce is a great substitute for that unhealthy oil!! My family members are picky eaters so I must be very sly about the trade-offs!
My favorite things to cook
Homemade breads, pastas and cakes. As well as recipes with fresh vegies and herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There's hardly a weekend that my husband and I aren't in the backyard BBQ'ing; a pot of beans on the stove and homemade rolls are rising! Can't forget the chocolate cake for dessert.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking is definetly something that practice makes perfect and I am slowly seeing the benefits. The more experience I get the better most of my cooking and baking turns out!
My cooking tragedies
I have a tendancy to want to try a new recipe for guests before I try it out first. I have found it is best to stay with what you know for company and practice the recipe first!
