We have been together for the last 12 years and both of us enjoy cooking.
We have 3 children & have lived in California for 10 years.
My favorite things to cook
He loves to grill or make variations of breaded chicken pan fried. He's also the whole show when it comes to entertaining. He loves to put on meals.
I love using the slow cooker & oven to make hearty- comfort foods. Lately, trying new recipes out on the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband makes the worlds best Meat Stuffng at Thanksgiving. Not kidding...ground pork, ground beef, spices and veggies, cooked and mashed together to make a stiff stuffing that can be cut into slabs we put on buttered toast. Oh my! Gets my mouth watering just thinking about it!
Not that it's a huge tradition--
I have a Bacon Wrapped Mapple glazed Turkey I make at the holidays, drives him wild! I am always on the hunt for new recipes and while trying to change things up a bit one year got myself saddled with now being our family Turkey chef.
My cooking triumphs
Triumphs? I would say any recipe that turns out well enough to be enjoyed by those eating it!
My cooking tragedies
Oh Gosh, I recall clearly the night he burned our dinner on the grill so bad we thought we might end up calling the fire department.
I myself, have had too many tragedies to even list! Let's just say...I like to "live and learn" One big problem I have is that no matter what, I try to eyeball ingredients. Not great when certain flavors need to be measured carefully (A recent mustard chicken incident comes to mind). Also not great in baking. BTW, I cannot make a decent cookie for anything! Let's hope that will change now that I am so addicted to this site!
