My sister and I shared an account on this site since 2004- but I'm branching out on my own. We have found many of our favorite recipies here and have learned a lot about cooking and baking from this site. This year I'm trying to eat less meat...
My favorite things to cook
I always like to try new things but my favorite dishes right now are Chicken Tinga and Curried Carrot Soup, both from this site. I'm also baking a lot of bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make creamed spinach in the slow cooker for Thanksgiving every year. My mother passed on to me her mother's amazing waffle and pancake recipies and her love for one pot and slow cooker cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves my cooking and inspires me to try new recipes. Recently, I made him a loaf of raisin rye bread just like the ones he used to buy in Providence, RI, where we used to live.
My cooking tragedies
One of my first attempts at baking was my mother's apple crisp. I mixed up tablespoon and teaspoon for the Nutmeg and the whole things was inedible.
I try to stay positive about my mistakes (or "learning experiences"), so calling them tragedies seems harsh.
