Cooking is one of the things I do to relax, I get that from my Grandmother. A freezer stocked with homemade "heat and eat" meals makes me do the happy dance. I use organic ingredients whenever possible.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, crock pot meals, freezer cooking sessions, homemade bread, italian, texmex, you name it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home grown and home canned is better than store bought. My best meal ever was a birthday dinner as a child. Everything on my plate came out of my Grandmother's garden and was prepared (lovingly) by her. So special!!
My cooking triumphs
My husband is in the habit of thanking me, every night, for preparing dinner. We've been married for 20 years and he still does it. That has been so motivating for me as a cook! I consider marrying the right man my greatest cooking triumph. LOL!!
My cooking tragedies
Couldn't tell you. I know I've had a few but life is to short to dwell on the tragedies.
