I love to learn new things, explore, and am extremely positive!
My favorite things to cook
I love oriental cooking and flavors the best. The wok is ingenious!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Basically meat, taters, fresh or frozen veggies growing up based on limited family budget. Later, my mother explored upper end Italian cuisine. Mom is the best cooking teacher I could have. She and my grandmother are true blessings!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner is my best always. The turkey is always purchased fresh from the Amish which DOES make a flavor difference and worth the price. A wonderful chestnut stuffing, aparagus with a ring of acorn squash, fresh salad, fresh cranberry sauce, mashed red skins with a drizzle of garlic butter, and pies galore. The reviews in my house tell me it's my best!
My cooking tragedies
hmmm...nothing recent thank goodness...because it has been literally YEARS since I blew up a potato in my oven...grin.
