Not too much to say... I enjoy life! I make the choice, daily, to be happy no matter the circumstance. Should challenges arise, and I should fall... I get up stronger and wiser, with faith I'll never fall over the same obstacle twice.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not much of a baker. Although, there are a few cookie, cake, and pie recipes I enjoy making. I love Asian and Italian fare! I'm a little weak when it comes to the traditional "meat and potato" kinds of meals. But, allow me an opportunity to "spice it up" and I'm all over it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm "measuring spoon" challenged. My mother always taught, "a little bit of that... a few shakes of this... chop a couple handfuls of these..." etc. So, I'm only now starting to learn the value of a measured amount of flavor.
My cooking triumphs
I have a few recipes my daughter likes to brag to her friends about. I know it's a success when my little girl invites all her friends over and begs me to cook!
My cooking tragedies
There are times I have limited items in my cupboard or refrigerator. In those times I am at my most creative. Occasionally, I'll create some things which, although edible, I'd probably not share with guests. This, however, is not the tragedy. Other times, I create selections and think, "Wow! this is fantastic!!" It is then I realize, not only did I NOT measure anything... I have already forgotten what I added together to create it! THAT is my biggest tragedy!
