Guess I like to eat good food so I enjoy cooking. I most always am disappointed when I go to a restaurant and I find I could have made a better meal than what I just paid for. Rarely do I ever use a recipe unless it is in baking. I kinda just make it up as I go with what I have around. I can fruits and veggies from the garden and love that part of cooking also.
My favorite things to cook
Sauces, pasta, baked goods. Chicken and beef recipes.
Mexican food is my all time favorite thing to cook,
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey dinners and homemade Turtles and fudge. My grandkids love my burrito ranchero casserole.
My cooking triumphs
My candy and my pasta dishes. Also my chile rellenos. Home grown pablano peppers and that makes the difference. Plus my sauce for them is awesome. All from our garden. I roast the peppers, onions and tomatoes. And lots of garlic, simmer in a little chicken broth. Yummmm!
My cooking tragedies
Once I undercooked turkey legs. Trying to empress a date.
Didn't even know he didn't like dark meat till I married him. He loves my turkey and he eats the white and I eat the dark.
