I believe the BEST foods come from your own kitchen! I love to utilize left-overs, make the most out of bargain purchases, and having diversified menus with plenty of variety!

My cooking triumphs
I make it a point to think about the week's menu in advance. This takes a lot of pressure off of considering "what to cook" each night.
My cooking tragedies
Really never had one, other than spilling something that requires LOTS of clean-up or having to go to the store to replace.
