I am a Mom and Grandmom. I have more time at home now. Run a small home internet business. Started expanding my cooking choices last 5 years. Wanted to eat more healthy. Tired of eating in restuarants & fast food.
Although, still love my In&Out Cheesburger once in a while.
Found my own fresh cooking was so much more flavorable. I only use fresh herbs now.
My favorite things to cook
-Italian with fresh herbs.
-Easy and fast.
-Not into long preparations. Only when cooking scratch soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
-Old fashioned "Chicken Fried Steak" is still on our home menue. Coated with egg and flour and fried in oil. Only prepare 2 time a year now. A hearty meal for when sons are visiting.
-Chile Tostados / Always raves
-Chile Cheese Omelet w/ avacado & Sour Cream
My cooking triumphs
-Veal Marsala and Chicken Picatta.
-Cheese stuffed broiled tomatoes.
Lots of basil. My favorit herb.
-Stuffed Shells with ricotta and cream cheese. Tomatoe sauce.
My cooking tragedies
First and last Apple Pie. Apples dried out when cooked. Hum?
