I like to be creative with recipes and substitute ingredients for what I have on hand.Usually, I have good results. I tend to stay away from recipes that have too many ingredients. I enjoy reading suggestions from other reviewers, lots of good substitutions have been found.
My favorite things to cook
Stir frys - as there is so much versatility.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a great cook, especially of East Indian food,but unfortunately her skills were not passed onto me. Somehow, she managed to learn to make a great variety of ethnic dishes and also traditional British food.Don't know how she did it, as I never saw her use a cookbook. She cooked with pride and love.
My cooking triumphs
banana bread and zucchini bread,
My cooking tragedies
nothing that wasn't edible.
