I like a lot of different foods. We are a family of 4 & go heavy on veggies & fruit. Only 1 is a big meat eater. We are all tall & thin and gave up trying to gain weight. You might think this is great but try buying jeans to fit.
My favorite things to cook
After an ex that liked nothing but plain food & no changes, I love trying new things. Love to cook with fruit. Also learned to stir fry & make chinese. Put harvest in freezer to make sure there is a variety of veggies & fruit all year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Have to have turkey on thanksgiving. Turkey soup with stuffing muffins are a staple in winter. We make a big pot, save adding pasta until ready to eat. Always have frozen cranberries to make sauce fresh. Other special times it's a vote.
My cooking triumphs
Always trying new things now and 90% get raves. Still learning but even my daughter & her kids say "You're really turning into a good cook." Had no idea they all knew the past was boring.
My cooking tragedies
I'm so ashamed but to this day I cannot flip an egg. So they fry their own or eat scrambled or poached. Also the sweet potatoe souffle - tasted great but a fallen souffle looks horrible.
