I have just started to dabble in cooking during the last 5 years or so. It is somewhat a daunting task, considering I am married to a CIA graduate specializing in classic french style and has extensive fine food and wine restaurant experience. (But what a great resourse!)
My favorite things to cook
My new favorite toy is the slow cooker. But, right now, I like to try everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from Texas, we always had nachos on Sunday night. We ate a great deal of Tex-Mex and that is my favorite type of food. Right now, I am creating my own traditions for my family.
My cooking triumphs
Still looking for that.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking for my husband (trying to impress him by knowing his background) and not realizing I am supposed to wash pinenuts before cooking with them. He was picking the grit out of his teeth after sampling my spinach.
