A young couple who melded the food we grew up on, and built on it to make something all our own. The Mr. discovered talent and ambition for cooking, the Mrs. added her instinct, and there began a journey to feeding their family of 3, and many others who happen to be wherever we are at dinnertime.
My favorite things to cook
Something old, something new, something borrowed, but nothing blue (unless it has blueberries in it).
My favorite family cooking traditions
With the little one emerging with a passion for cooking it's really fun when we can make cooking dinner a family activity. Thanksgiving is also a hit with us (every year we try to do something different with the turkey).
My cooking triumphs
Homegrown basil made into a pesto served over homemade ravioli. The best family recipe of homemade chicken noodle soup imaginable. A wonderful Orange Goose. Apple pie from scratch. Hawaiian Teryaki Chicken. A family recipe of Broken Glass Salad (first time alone), including a very low-sugar version (adapted on the spot). So many more.
My cooking tragedies
A brined turkey that got everyone sick. A ton of batches of cookies (not sure the Mrs. has ever made an unburnt cookie).
