My family was very large as I was growing up and my mom had to find fast ways to get great meals that we would all eat! A lot of my cooking techniques and recipes are really hers that she has passed on to me.
My favorite things to cook
I love CHOCOLATE and COFFEE... so anything that combines the two is lovely.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas is my favorite time to cook especially because my mom and I have made a tradition of getting together and baking! We spend an entire afternoon planning what we want to cook, cooking it, and enjoy eating it afterward. It's is the most fun I have all year.
My cooking triumphs
Corned beef and cabbage... I made two non-believers into lovers with my corned beef and cabbage... it was yuuuuuuummmmmmmyyyyy!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Sadly I cannot get a handle of cool and no cook foods. I can make a salad buts it's always generic in taste and style. I am dying to find recipes that don't require a stove, grill, or oven.
