I love gardening and cooking was the next natural step. I have no problem with spending 3 hours in the kitchen every night. I enjoy it! I work mainly nights now and as much as I love it it's a drag to only be able to really cook a couple of nights a week...
My favorite things to cook
For some reason I get the most satisfaction out of making soups from scratch. I also love putting together a gourmet grilled veggie sandwich. I just love cooking what I grow. Mexican fits the bill beautifully!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in a small family and we really didn't cook elaborate meals very much - maybe because I was such a picky eater as a kid!
My cooking triumphs
Grilled mahi mahi - Yum! FINALLY learned how to make GOOD salsa!
My cooking tragedies
Baking, in general. I enjoy baking but just don't seem to have what it takes.
