I LOVE to cook! I really enjoy trying new recipes but I almost NEVER make a recipe exactly as written (unless I'm baking) because I love to modify everything to my taste!
My favorite things to cook
Baked spaghetti, chicken francese, orange roughy florentine, roasted veggies (especially asparagus), curried chicken and rice, and chicken paprikash
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not measuring anything, just eyeballing LOL!
My cooking triumphs
I love to create new dishes out of the ingredients I have in my kitchen and I am really good at it. The only problem is that I don't write anything down...so when it comes out amazing - I can't duplicate it exactly a 2nd time!
My cooking tragedies
My first effort at making fried rice! I added the raw egg to the rice in the wok instead of cooking the egg separately...ugh...I ended up with a batch of fried mush :P
