I'm 21 with a wonderful husband and our two beautiful kids who are sometimes apprehensive to try my "experiments" but usually come out please. I've been cookign since I was 7, when my Gram first started teaching me, and I'm always on the hunt for something new to try.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, casserols, and grilled foods. Favorites in my house and make for quick and easy meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Gram taught my mom, my mom and Gram taught me, and I hope to teach my daughter when she's old enough. All my grandparents recipes are from memory, and I love to learn to prepare them by taste not by paper.
My cooking triumphs
Saffron muscle stew, shark chowder, mushroom mustard chicken breast, baked steak, boastful mashed potatoes.
My cooking tragedies
apple squash soup... everyone loved it but me; dijon chicken bites, I misread the recipe and put WAY too much mustard! Eck! Sailor clams: it was too spicy, and the clams were crunchy with sand... awful.
