Haven't written in a while - its been a busy summer. I'm trying to hold true to the purpose of my blog, which is to write about my dogs and their daily adventures in the great lives they lead.
Lately, I've really noticed that one of my dogs in particular really has a sweet…
I often use the recipes I find as a starting point to make my own version of that particular dish. I love cooking, and find it relaxing and a way to bond with family and friends hanging out in the kitchen. Love having people over for dinner, last minute or well planned out. Nothing fancy, but GOOD!
My favorite things to cook
my famous mashed potatoes, pasta dishes, creative salads, anything that doesn't involve baking!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried Matzoh, Cottage Cheese pancakes (sounds gross, tastes unbelievable), pork tenderloin, chicken and dumplings.
My cooking triumphs
Not ruining my first $100 piece of beef tenderloin for a party of 8!!! Perfection - pan seared first, pan and all in the over to finish, perfect!
My cooking tragedies
The chocolate-chocolate Chip bundt cake that took me 2 hours to put together, followed direction to the tee, and still managed to burn and have it taste like sandpaper...:(
