My favorite things to cook
I'm more of a baker than a cook, and I love to make bread. In terms of cooking, on a day to day basis I love to make simple things, like stirring whatever I happen to have on hand into pasta, ( affectionatley known in my household as "stuff in a pot"). However, I do like to experiment and make special things from time to time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's side of the family is Mexican, so of course I love to cook the food. On my dad's side of the family my grandmother's dinners are legendary. expecially the spaghetti with meat sauce. My Grandpa also has a blueberry farm, so blueberries are dear to my heart. It also can't be a holiday without my family's famous Dilly Bread.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean loaf of braided french bread.
My cooking tragedies
I was experimenting with a recipe for chicken strips for the national chicken cook off, and my oil was too hot. The chicken was black on the outside, and raw on the inside.
