I am 54 years old, I have 3 children, Joanne 42, Carl 37, and Rachel 32. ( I need to say here that Jo and Carl are my husbands children from his first marriage) My husband is Tony and we are both retired Police officers from England. For the last 9 years we have lived in Totana Spain and love our retirement and the Spanish culture and lifestyle (still learning the language)We have made many friends here, Spanish people are very social and once they take you into their hearts that's it for life!I love to cook for my family but I don't have the confidence to cook for others. I am trying new recipes from this site and eventually I would like to be able to invite my Spanish friends over for a meal. I'll keep you posted on that!
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti bolognese, lasagne, meat balls. I prefer savoury dishes and I get put off if there are to many ingredients in a recipe. Ideally I like recipes where I can use things out of the cupboard or fridge. If I don't have the ingredients, it never gets made. I have every intention of making it at the time but never get around to making a list and actually shopping for it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None, my mother never spent time with us as children and never actually cooked anything other than very basic meals, beans, eggs, tinned soup
My cooking triumphs
none I'm afraid to say.
My cooking tragedies
lots, my poor husband has eaten his way through almost 30 years of disasters and has only complained once in all of those years. God bless him!
