Newlywed, never cooked in my life! Specialties=burnt, raw and frozen in the middle, often all three at once! Know when a dish is ready when the smoke alarm goes off or the fire department arrives!
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry, recipes easy using every day ingredients, anything with sauteed mushrooms
My favorite family cooking traditions
Room service, dining on cruise lines, ordering out pre made delivery food, having an event catered, making someone else cook (not related to our genetics!).
My cooking triumphs
BEEF WELLINGTON for SIX people on my husbands birthday!!! It look amazing, cooked perfectly and tasted out of this world!!! I combined the suggestions of SEVERAL recipes. A MIRACLE thanks all the people who support and contribute to this website!!!.THANK YOU ALL!!! I've made this twice and wish I'd taken a pix to prove to my family I'm not a total "princess" and to add to this website as a triumph against all odds!!!
My cooking tragedies
"Nuclear Popcorn" thanks to my try at making "real" popcorn in a cast iron pot with the heavy lid on that I left cooking while I finished watching a movie. The cast iron lid kept "exploding" off the pot until I saw the flash of light (fire) in a reflection in my glass windows and felt the reverberation of the explosion. Jiffy Pop was my new best friend, now I just burn it in the microwave. Not my cooking forte!!!
