My partner and I love to travel and try new foods when we do...not like Andrew Zimmern with Bizarre Foods, but trying things from the country, city, region etc. We've lived across the US in 9 states and travel ouside of the country yearly. Usually in Europe but venturing to Asia this year.
My favorite things to cook
I was a novice at cooking until I started working part-time or not working at all for a while and I had to learn. I was also working at Williams-Sonoma and everyone I worked with cooked and I also had to help and advise people about cooking. I like to try anything, just not too complex and am trying healthier foods as of recent.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No real traditions here...but I love making sauce for pasta, homemade salsa, friendship bread.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a full meal and everything turned out great...phew. That was about 8 years ago.
My cooking tragedies
To many to mention...nothing tragic, nor memorable, just wrong.
