I love cooking, eating healthy, yoga, makeup, trying new things, hiking, traveling, visiting new places.
My favorite things to cook
Roasting vegetables, making homemade soups, making pasta and meatballs with homemade sauce in wintertime, anything with fresh herbs and fresh veggies from the garden. Making quick, healthy, fresh dinners during the work week too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my grandma's stuffing at Thanksgiving with rice, ground beef, etc. (non-traditional stuffing but a traditional staple in my family).
My cooking triumphs
Following recipes and putting my own twist on them to add fresh ingredients whenever possible.
My cooking tragedies
I wanted to make "lemon pepper" chicken breasts in the oven. Instead of sprinkling the dried lemon pepper seasoning I coated the chicken like how you would make chicken cutlets with lemon pepper seasoning. My husband and I tasted it and holy LEMON FACE!!!! It was way tooooo tart. I don't know what I was thinking!? We still joke about it to this day! I've never used that seasoning since.
