My favorite things to cook
Lets see..I like to cook a variety of things. I love trying to duplicate restaurant recipes (not that I always succeed), but when I eat something I enjoy, I like to challenge myself to try and figure out how it was made.
I do however, tend to find myself making dishes that don't consist of side dishes. You know like soups, meatballs and spaghetti, chilie over rice, lasagna, ect, ect... I like being able to put my focuses on one dish and try and make it as perfect as I can possibly can.
All in all I like to cook what I like to eat...so basically everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooking traditions would be Portuguese dishes. I will have to say that I wasn't always in love with those dishes growing up. Now that I'm older and can cook for myself I have learned to add my own twist to some of those dishes, without taking the authenticity away.
