I was married in Oct 2009, and a month later my husband and I moved to Eastern Europe to help his parents with the church they've started. I didn't cook much before but of course being married I had to learn. Everything I know now are from the Better Homes and Garden cookbook! I love trying new foods and baking new things.
My favorite things to cook
Currently I love cooking chicken different ways, along with trying new cookie and dessert recipes. It's a little more difficult to follow American recipes only because this country doesn't carry everything the US does, but there are many substitutions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tamales. My grandmother is awesome at making them along with my mother. It's my favorite when my grandmother let me and my sister help in small ways.
My cooking triumphs
I believe I've mastered beef pot roast! and chocolate chip cookies
My cooking tragedies
where do I begin? Hmm...I tend to destroy lots of potato recipes...and I wasted chocolate trying to make brownies, I still don't know what I did wrong...
