My favorite things to cook
Bacon wrapped Halibut with seared cherry tomato sauce. YUM
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Aunt makes the family spaghetti. I tried for days to recreate it and finally broke down and called her, it's so easy but better than anyone else can make!
My cooking triumphs
Christmas 2010, I had broken my wrist on the 19th and was in a long arm cast yet I managed to cook a full Christmas dinner with my non dominate hand, and only broke 2 dishes :) The only thing I was going to ask for help on was getting the ham out of the oven, but everyone had gone outside, so I did that by myself too!
My cooking tragedies
First time I tried to cook without a recipe and just throw things together, piece of beef, refried beans, pineapple salsa and cheese all baked for a little while...horrible, but the dog loved it!
While making my own rendition of a stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon broiled in the oven, I caught the oven on fire (I do it every time I make it). The chicken was excellent though!
