The Manire
About this Cook
I love to cook and try different things. Over the last year I started growing my own vegetables and have learned many new homemade recipes that I would have, otherwise, never tried.
My favorite things to cook
I love making homemade tacos and homemade pasta. A lot of work but worth the effort to see the happiness on people's faces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking anything with my niece and nephew, especially when they make up their own recipe.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti Bolognese from scratch including the pasta.
My cooking tragedies
Hollandaise sauce. I'm determined to master this one. I've only successfully conquered it once in my many attempts.

Sweet Zucchini Relish
This is my first year growing my own vegetables and to my surprise, I have zucchini coming out of my ears. I think I have made every zucchini 'something' you could think of. I stumbled across this recipe and thought I'd give it a go. I've never canned anything before so I was a little gun shy because after all the work, I didn't want to fail. So I jumped in. I followed the instructions and wala! - sweet zucchini relish. It's by far, the most popular thing I've made and everyone begs me for more or just helps themselves to a jar when they're over. The first time I made it, I forgot the onions but everyone raved about it so apparently no one noticed. Now I include the onions and people still rave about it. My sister and 13 yr old nephew like to eat it as salsa with chips. I don't think there's a wrong way to eat this. I have other friends who buy food around my relish. Who knew zucchini relish could have so much power? Great recipe.
