I like to make things from scratch. It feels good to feed my family food that isn't full of preservatives.
My favorite things to cook
I like to find new things to cook out of ingredients already in my kitchen, which is one reason I love this site. Being able to search recipes by ingredients is a great feature.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies and treats with my mom. Now I like to cook with my daughter, it takes a lot of patience, but it is great time together.
My cooking triumphs
I could never cook anything without having the recipe in front of me, but I am starting to learn and experiment on my own and meals are still tasting good, so I think that is huge!
My cooking tragedies
So many tragedies, so little space to type them all... Probably once a month, but I don't give up. :)
