Since our kids have flown the nest, there's only two of us to cook for now. I often look for dishes that do well for leftovers.
I was getting very bored with the things that I was cooking and dreaded looking through cookbooks for something interesting. Since I've joined allrecipes, my cooking has definitely gotten better and I'm finding lots of things that we like. Every time I'm asked about cooking, I tell them about allrecipes.com !
My favorite things to cook
Something easy, often something that I have the ingredients for, as we live 20 minutes from the grocery store. I meal-plan as I shop usually, looking for bargains.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family enjoys tradional holiday menus, and once in a while, I'll make something that I enjoyed at Christmastime as a child. But usually, I cook to suit the tastes of my guests.
