I am a TERRIBLE "everyday" cook, I can cook great holiday meals, but that is because I take a day for prep and a full day for cooking...but a "simple" dinner for the family - I'm not very good at that.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that takes less than 15 minutes to prep, that doesn't require much chopping, and that has fewer than 10 ingredients...if it only dirties up one or two pans for the whole meal, then it's a winner!
My cooking triumphs
I love making Thanksgiving Dinner. After 20+ years I think I've pretty much got that one meal down!
My cooking tragedies
Married only a few days, I substituted buttermilk for regular milk when making scrambled eggs...if he thought that the "she's a terrible cook" warnings were fibs he definitely knew better after that meal!
