I live in a small community with my boyfriend and his son. I am addicted to cook books!
My favorite things to cook
I love to try anything new. My family are my guinea pigs when it comes to new recipes. I am a traditionalist when it comes to cooking. I love to cook a big meal on Sundays.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Raining, fall weekends calls for a pot of homemade chili, or homemade chow mein (basically a chicken stew with chinese vegetables. Baking is huge for me during the fall.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner to perfection just a few years ago. Everything was timed perfectly.
My cooking tragedies
Last Thanksgiving my oven died (thermostat gave out) while the turkey was in the oven. We ended up cooking it on the grill and it didn't end well.
