I am learning to cook healthy. I love reading recipes and getting ideas for something new. Very rarely do I follow a recipe exactly! I also enjoy beading, reading and watching the ocean.
My favorite things to cook
I've gone raw vegan for health reasons! I'm learning to un-cook! Prep is fun, food is healthy and straight from the earth. I buy local produce when I can, definitely organic. Anyone else out there???
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was one of 13 in an Italian family. She was an awesome cook. Having so many mouths to feed and growing up on a chicken farm, they learned to use what they had. A Sunday dinner at her house often consisted of a huge pot of spaghetti with chicken in it. She would also boil eggs, saute them in olive oil until a bit golden and then put them in the gravy. This made them a bit porous and they would soak up the sauce and turn orange! Don't knock it until you try it, everyone I've ever made it for loved it!
My cooking triumphs
The seafood lasagna from this site (search for the one with flounder). It was worth every second and every penny!
My cooking tragedies
I can burn toast...LOL.
