I have always enjoyed cooking, but I felt like I really only had the opportunity at pot lucks and holidays. I was just married in March 2011, so now I have a reason to make yummy food all the time!
While I have basically mastered the art of junk food, my husband is on Weight Watchers which has forced me to look at food and cooking a little differently. It's been quite the challenge, but we're both seeing the benefits!
My favorite things to cook
Pastries! Breads, cakes, cookies, etc
My favorite family cooking traditions
The lack of family cooking traditions is actually what inspired me to start cooking. I am not able to say, "Nobody makes ____ like my mom!" But, hopefully, my children will be able to fill in that blank with a wide variety of foods.
My cooking triumphs
Regularly knocked out of the park-
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms,
Spiced Pumpkin Loaf,
Chocolate Covered Shortbread,
Mexican Chicken Stew,
My cooking tragedies
I love Indian food, but I have yet to turn out anything Indian that I am willing to eat a second helping of.
