I like to save money by not buying pre-packaged convenience foods. I almost never buy anything if it's not on sale. I love simple recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to discover/create gluten-free, low-carb recipes, as that is my diet. My son has a problem with casein, and dairy-free is much more challenging.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We like to entertain, though we don't do it nearly enough due to peoples' busy schedules.
My cooking triumphs
I am pretty good at whipping stuff up off-the-cuff. I love to do this when we are tempted to go out to eat...then as we're enjoying a healthier yummy homemade meal I think, "Wow, we just saved $30!"
My cooking tragedies
I have made some pretty brick-ish bread in my day.
