I just moved back to my hometown of Olympia after living for 21 years in San Jose, CA. I have had a bit of time on my hands while staying at my parents, so I started cooking a lot of the meals. I never enjoyed cooking in the past. I think now it was because I never took the time to learn new recipes, or for that matter, never took the time to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Beef and pork. Sometimes desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
My son recently caught his first fish; a 12 lbs. salmon. My Dad does not like fish. I used the Alaska Salmon Bake w/Pecan Crunch Coating recipe. My Dad complimented me twice on the meal. Said the fish was very good - moist and flavorful.
My cooking tragedies
Just about all the recipes I try to develope.
