I have an interest in all areas of domestic life, cooking being my favorite.I would love to be able to someday say that I am a highly skilled home cook. I'm a traditionalist, I like the ole' time cooks with proven recipes. My food philosophy is simple, comfortable, traditional.
My favorite things to cook
BREAD! I love the whole process of bread-making. Green peppers and onions, salt and pepper can carry a dish a long way...
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have RARELY seen my grandmother use a recipe to cook and I enjoy her cooking..BUT I BELIEVE in the value of a good recipe; a "good" recipe being one that works and produces a good product everytime!
My cooking triumphs
I'm doing pretty good with drop cookies! I've also cooked some good breads that I am proud of!
My cooking tragedies
Still trying to perfect mac n cheese! If I make thomas jefferson style it sometimes comes out too flour/grainy not velvety...With Baking: learning alot about following recipes to the letter and what a disaster a recipe can become if you don't pay attention/ or have a bad recipe... I sometimes mess up cakes made from scratch! I think its my oven, seriously! LOL
