My favorite things to cook
I LOVE anything that involves pasta, using my slow cooker, and making hearty soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Some of my best dishes have been 'thrown' together experiments... But my top two are my roasted chickens (seasonings vary) and my homemade fried rice- DELISH!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a newbie to the slow cooker, I wanted to make a good jumbalaya in it... Not really having a recipe or knowing the rules of the slow cooker, I threw some rice, water, whole cans of beans and tomatoes and seasoning and let the bad boy go....
I had a mushy mess of rice and beans that smelled FABULOUS but was extremely difficult to stomach...
Still haven't tried it again... :-)
