I'm a newlywed who loves to cook for my husband and family. Due to some health problems, I do not work at the moment, so I have a bit of free time to further create in the kitchen. :) Even though I've been a member for some time now, loving all of the wonderful recipes on here that everyone submits, my cooking interests have now changed. I just found out Im gluten intolerant- so I'll be searching for healthy recipes in that department. I also hope to be uploading my own soon in time...hopefully to help others with their GF life. While scary because my food world has been turned upside-down, I am also extremely excited to embark on this new adventure and start feeling better!
My favorite things to cook
Honestly, ANYTHING that will put a smile on someone's face! I love to try new dishes to expand the dinner menu. BUT I think my favorite thing to do in the kitchen is BAKE. :D I started out with cookies-moved on to cakes-and I am now experimenting with pies! Love it! It's my stress reliever. The only thing is, now I'll be experimenting with gluten free recipes. Gotta keep hubby happy! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't think we really have any other than the usual Holiday feasts. I do have to say though, both of my grandmothers really can/could cook! I learned a lot from the both of them-as well as my mother. :)
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm...I think the first time I cooked a turkey! Lol, it made me nervous, but it came out juicy! :DDDD
My cooking tragedies
Oh my gosh, when I made a recipe that I make a million times, for my cousin who had requested it. I think I was super tired cause my hand was a little heavy on the seasoning. I made it too SALTY! AHHH, I couldn't even eat it! And bless his soul, he still kept giving me compliments!
