I love to cook and enjoy family dinners at home. Mostly enjoy dishes that are ethnic... FLAVOR! Busy mom who loves photography and one day will try to do something with it. Drive kids crazy when I chase a sunset to capture a pic.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook a few dishes I learned from my Dad, Chicken paprikas...I guess I love it because it's easy and everyone in the house loves it. Anytime a dish satisfies the entire family, it's a dish worth repeating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I think of the way my family cooks....It's always more, more, more! There is always more for later.. Also eat a piece of bread with it, my Dad would say... Thanks for my carb habit Dad! Sour dough was pretty much the only bread in our home... I hated it as a kid, but love as a adult. The food always made from scratch and Hungarian dishes...Add some paprika to it!
My cooking triumphs
The one thing I have had issues with oddly is Spanish rice.... I get all the ingredients right, but for some reason the texture is never what I hope to achieve. My husband compares rice to his Grandmas. Can't be wet, sticky or undercooked. Fluffy is the goal...
My cooking tragedies
No burnt turkeys to talk about. Hopefully I won't ever have more to fill in this area.
