I am a 40 something designer & piano teacher who has raised 3 kids. With busy schedules, I have had to cook quick & easy, and on the go for years. Now, I'm starting over. Recent college grad, and a new found interest in cooking healthy. My significant other and I cook together, so it is an enjoyable experience now.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but try not to since I will eat too much. Currently, I am in search of "heart healthy" foods that are delicious. It has become a mission.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Aunt Dot's chocolate fudge is better than anything I've ever tasted. I still make it for special occasions.
Grandma's Coca Cola salad is another family fave, along with her recipe for southern potato salad.
My cooking triumphs
During the busy years with the kids, I converted a teriyaki chicken recipe into a very simplistic version that my kids all loved. Now that they are grown, they always request "ducky chicken" for their special birthday dinner.
My cooking tragedies
OMG .. too many to mention. Maybe brownies that had the consistency of concrete?
