I am a shift worker with a house full of people to feed. I am not very creative when it comes to cooking so look to All Recipes to inspire me to try new things. I am good at making modifications to suit what I have on hand. My husband is the real genius cook in our house.
My favorite things to cook
Anything easy and with as few ingredients as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My nana's applesauce meatballs and French Unbaked cake. My sisters and I adore these two recipes and we don't share them. Our mother would "kill" us!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook a turkey in my new convection oven with a meat probe.
It turned out as pretty as a magazine and it was delicious.
My cooking tragedies
I cooked Christmas dinner with my new convection oven and misread the temperature. I used the convection temperature on the regular setting. It took a VERY long time to get the turkey to cook through.
