I am having to relearn cooking, as our son was born with severe food allergies. The allergies were eggs and dairy, which meant I learned a lot of Vegan recipes. Just recently he outgrew his egg allergy which has opened a whole new world for him! We still strictly avoid any milk in any form. It's amazing how much CHEESE is in children's food / recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Every meal. We like to grill (even in the snow) and really enjoy finding ways to use our local farm-share.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have no family traditions, as I don't come from a long line of cooks. We love rediscovering Southern recipes and "older", post-war recipes - which were very conservative in their use of eggs and dairy!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to bake vegan deserts - that other people like too.
My cooking tragedies
Learning to bake vegan deserts - that didn't even appeal to us!
