Chronic pain limits my time in the kitchen, but I've always had an interest in cooking, and continue to try new recipes and collect them.
My favorite things to cook
I love the old standby of spaghetti and meatballs, tho I'm very fond of shrimp with angel hair pasta & Parmesan cheese. :) I also enjoy cooking steak and anything with bacon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom sometimes sit and go thru recipes and cookbooks, to find something interesting and yummy to try.
My cooking triumphs
One of the most memorable recipes in my family is homemade sausage & gravy. I can say I'm very proud of myself for making it exactly how my PopPop used to make it. I'm sure he would be proud of me too.
My cooking tragedies
I can't say I've really had any cooking tragedies. However, my dad had once tried a recipe from the old government issued peanut butter, that also involved pork. It was horrendous! lol He ate it, the rest of us passed.
