I am a thirty year old with a love of food and a growing need to watch calories.
I'm pretty easy-going when it comes to food, but I must have easy and good recipes or they never get made. I am a sucker for fast recipes, ie. small number of ingredients, fast cook times and easy substitutions.
I'm also a sucker for desserts although I haven't made many from this website. I have too many really great family recipes.
Well, that's me!
My favorite things to cook
Curries, Chicken Jambalaya, Sugar Cookies (actually any kind of cookies), Asian Food, Peanut Butter Bon-Bons, Anything new I can test on my husband
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I would make about 200 sugar cookies for Halloween and Christmas. Then my whole family would help us frost and decorate them. We had to make alot because half the cookies would disappear while being "frosted".
My cooking triumphs
I single-handedly catered a holiday dinner and dessert party for my fellow employees at a luxury resort. I loved cooking the food and the Christmas candies. Although it was alot of work, I would do it all over again in a second.
I also love the fact that I can cook food for my family that they not only love, but are willing to finish off the leftovers.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a peanut butter pie that ended up as peanut butter flavored cement. I still don't know what I did wrong, but it seriously was a slab of hard and slimy gelatin/cement. It was horrible!
