I started cooking a little over two years ago after I met the love of my life. I had never cooked before that and now I'm still learning and cooking a lot more than I did two years ago. I'm hoping to become much better and build a menu of favorites for my VERY picky man.
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and easy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really get into cooking. But one recipe I haven't been able to get down is my mother's "onion gravy" it's just a regular white gravy based on onions and pepper, but I can't get it to taste like anything but flour! I will get this one day!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I make something the man LOVES. Not just "it's ok," but LOVES. He's picky so that doesn't happen very often.
My cooking tragedies
Almost anytime I bake, I always make a HUGE mess. Flour everywhere!
I once tried to make a cheesecake from scratch and I thought I followed the instructions but it never solidified and just remained a very disgusting cheesecake soup.
I once tried to make some fancy heart shaped cookies with a double layer and chocolate in the middle. They turned out rock-hard. Still don't understand why.
I'm not much of a baker. :/
