I am a total beginner, 33 yrs old and never really expressed an interest in cooking until recently. Newly married and wanting to provide some yummy, but healthy meals for my husband and I.
My favorite things to cook
chicken, shrimp, yummy desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's raviolis
My mom's spaghetti and meatballs
...have yet to make these, but hope to in the future.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate Peanut Butter bars-awesome, and so easy
stuffed mushrooms (so little effort for so many thank yous at the office).
Chicken Valentin (with baby asparagus spears) -YUM
My cooking tragedies
I used refrigerated pie crust that had apparently been in the freezer for too long, as it would not cook. I kept try to cook and cook a cheesecake and it just wasn't happening. Finally just said "screw it", flipped the thing upside down onto a cookie sheet and hit broil. Not my proudest moment. The end result closely resembled a charred cow patty.
