To be honest, I'm a novice cook. Within the last few years, I'll admit I've gotten better, but still can trip over my own feet in the kitchen. But at least, for every failure, I learn something new.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts! Love cooking quick breads, cookies, cakes, and pies. Someday I plan on plan on trying candies/fudges.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Heart-warming foods meant to strengthen the mind and body. My family has always put so much love in recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Mushroom risotto! I had never made anything this complex. I was so pleased, it turned out exactly as I anticipated. Everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
Rotisserie Shrimp. Too much seasoning, over-cooked, horrible mess. Maybe I'll try again someday, but it remains my worst tragedy.
