When I retire, I know I'll be in the kitchen all day long. I love making a nice meal from scratch for my family. Not only do I feel accomplished, but the family is always so appreciative. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach right!?
My favorite things to cook
I recently switched to a mostly vegetarian diet and am learning to cook without meat as a main protein source. Vegetarian lasagna, pizza, and other Italian style foods have the flavor I love and are easily turned vegetarian. The family is still a pack of carnivores though!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a Pandora station dedicated to when I make spaghetti or pasta meals. It's the Bobby Darin station if you must know! That era of music just feels so perfect for making pasta!
My cooking triumphs
I'm just starting to dabble in cake decorating and have successfully managed to make a few beautiful fondant cakes... with a few flops as well :)
My cooking tragedies
I'm a clumsy cook. When I'm not chopping my fingers off on the mandoline, I'm reaching into the oven without a mitt. Usually the only thing that suffers is me!
