I follow a low carb lifestyle and have been since 2002. I try to use whole, fresh foods rather than prepackaged products. I am an expert at modifying recipes to suit my taste and low carb way of eating.
My favorite things to cook
Since I follow a low carb way of eating I prepare a lot of salads and grilled meats/fish. I love seared chilean sea bass, smoked ribs, steak, beer can chicken and more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Make it from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
I asked my fiance if he wanted to out to dinner and he said that my cooking is better than what we could order at any restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy do I have them. Once I used salt instead of sugar in a plum custard. It filled the house with a heavenly smell and then as soon as we tasted it we all spit it out at the same time.
The important thing for me is to learn from my mistakes. I know that if I am not destroying something every now and then I am not trying enough new creations.
