I love cooking with beef.  Just about any cut will do.  Ground beef is a necessary staple in our household.  I would even go as far as to say that beef is my favorite meat protein (but I better not go on record as picking a favorite).  And what many people don't realize is that beef is a… MORE

About Me
About the ONLY thing I don't like about cooking is the HEAT!! I'm not sure why, but I get very easily overheated. I usually sit while cooking, and have a fan blowing directly on me if available. I've been thinking about renaming myself - thehotchef - lol. It's a little better in winter, but I live in Albuquerque, NM - it never gets REALLY cold here, and my body just seems to want to overheat when I get busy in the kitchen! That's one of the reasons I like to divide my kitchen work into 2 or 3 parts at a time. One day I chop the veggies, the next day I roast the veggies, and the 3rd day I put together the lasagna and bake, for example.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, black bottom banana cream pie, fruit salad, beef stroganoff. I like to try something new for Thanksgiving every year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's tea ring, macoroni/potato salad, bread, BRINING the Thanksgiving turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Best pies ever!
My cooking tragedies
My husband likes his own cooking better than mine! So much so that he is willing to make dinner for our family everyday - that's just fine with me!
