My dad is an expert cook, my mother an expert baker. I like both. I have a 3 yr. old son who I've taught not to be picky. For me cooking is a joy, necessity, and often relaxing. Not to mention rewarding!
My favorite things to cook
My greater hobby is eating. So I am trying to have no limitations with the things I try. Every region, and country has it's special style, but there is so much varity out there, how can you limit yourself!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Typical American food. And some old time recipes too. The tradition I hope to pass on is the use of spices and herbs. Native Utahn cooking, I have come to notice, is very limited on this.
My cooking triumphs
I believe you can make anything delicious if you no how to cook it! So far no reservations!
My cooking tragedies
A preseasoned bean mix, with soy sauage which I bought at Whole Foods. We had one bowl and it went straight in the trash! And I NEVER throw away food.
