I was raised in a home where Mom was an amazing cook and Dad was the best BBQ-er ever! We owned a few pizza parlors so I've had every kind of pizza ever made (almost). Now that I'm a house-wife and Nana I'm doing all of the cooking and loving it to death! AllRecipes is the primary reason I'm getting good at it :-)
My favorite things to cook
My hubby and I have changed what we eat over the past few months. We're changing to the Paleo diet which couldn't be more perfect for us. Check it out at www.nerdfitness.com.
We love meat and vegetables! And the different sites give great ideas and recipes as well. AllRecipes has Paleo recipes and so far they've all been great! I love learning about different things to cook with, what to mix and match with, and there's always a quick fix recipe available with needed.
So either give me a skillet, a BBQ, an oven or all of the above and I can knock out quite a meal! One that you wouldn't even know what part of a diet! Hahaha :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My family's not Italian, but my Mom makes the best spaghetti sauce I've ever had... and this comes from a woman who goes to an Italian restaurant no matter where I'm traveling. Unfortunately she doesn't have a written recipe. She cooks with her eyes, stomach and the garden. I'm getting better, and it's an awesome goal to have!
