I work for that really big organization that delivers letters. I don't have time to cook from scratch like I used to, so I find myself looking for short cuts and "quick and easy" recipes. I also am adjusting to cooking for two and converting recipes to what I need.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and Cookies....I love to make sweets...Especially CHOCOLATE...anything chocolate...did I say CHOCOLATE???? Nothing like it!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being of French Canadian descent, I learned to cook hearty meals. My Grandparents used to cook in the logging camps of the Adirondacks, and I have been gifted many of their treasured recipes. In later years, my Memere ran a hotel and cooked for the many travelers and family members that crossed her path. My Mother began cooking at an early age and grew to be the amazing cook she is today. My siblings and I each have our favorite meal or dessert that she prepares for us when we visit. No matter how old we get, it makes us feel like children inside.....
My cooking triumphs
There have been many and will continue to be many...I hope!
My cooking tragedies
Again, there have been many, and I'm sure there will be more to come in the future....unfortunately.
