i rarely follow a recipe. i'm always changing ingredients and amounts, depending on what i like or dislike. most of the time the recipe comes out okay, sometimes not. i don't cook as much as i would like to because i don't especially like to clean up. i think i would be a better cook if i had more patience.
My favorite things to cook
i really like to make pasta dishes and stove-top casseroles. i also like finding new ways to make & serve meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
as a kid, we would go to the grocery store as a family. my parents would always buy something different and/or unusual. when we would get home, my mom would put away the groceries and then we would all stand in the kitchen and eat that new food. i think that's why i'm such an adventurous eater. anyway, it was fun to do.
My cooking triumphs
i make the best baked brie in town!!
My cooking tragedies
my infamous "bowl cake". it was supposed to be a Bundt cake. I have pics!
