I married the man of my dreams in May of '08 and my nesting instincts have really been kicking in. With all the changes and business the kitchen has become my primary creative outlet! I love learning to plan meals that are healthy and economical without sacrificing flavor. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta. I could travel to any nation in the world and as long as they have a pasta dish - I can eat there. My husband and I love to travel, and when we can't, we love to experiment with flavor profiles from around the world. We tend to eat food from a different culture every night! I especially like looking to other cultures to find vegetarian and vegan dishes, since we only eat meat 2 or 3 times a week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No recipes. LOL :) ok... loose recipes... but most of the time we cook from the heart/off the cuff. It's almost always good and there's a great variety - but the downside is that we often remember a meal and say "that was great... I have no idea how to make it again though."
My grandmother's chicken casserole is hard to beat, too. ;)
