Currently I am dragging my boyfriend and his brother along as I try out every different, low-cost, good, healthy, recipe I can find. They are my Guinea Pigs but they don't seem to really mind.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking vegetarian meals and watching the look on my carnivore BF's face when I tell him there's no meat in the meal he just loved :P
I also love using the slow cooker to make dinners, it not only makes it soooo easy but it makes the house smell really good!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from two very different traditions, I have the quick and easy cooking side and then there's the labor of love/spending hours in the kitchen side; I try my best to balance the two but there are some days where the entire day is spent preparing for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned to cook meat this year!! Doesn't sound like a huge triumph but I was a vegetarian for a year after I moved away from home because I hated the feeling of raw meat so that is awesome! Getting over that opened up a huge realm of cooking for me which I've been exploring.
My cooking tragedies
None yet but give it time....
