I love to cook, and am trying to get better at it all the time! I need some help being more creative with my dishes...that's where YOU come in.
My favorite things to cook
Spicy and salty...and I love soup! Can't get enought of spicy, salty soup!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Crock pot wintertime dinners...my mom used to begin the recipe in the morning, and then when I got home from school it was my job to turn it up to high and monitor the delicious smells until the rest of the crew got home and was ready to eat!
Cornish game hens at holiday time...
Homemade donuts on my birthday...
Mom's magical tacos (why were they so good??)...
Grandma's homemade noodles (at 30 I still beg her for them)...
My cooking triumphs
When my dinner companions make 'yum' noises about something I have made. What a nice feeling!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, more than a few! Usually when I get distracted talking and enjoying my wine, and forget that I've an item on the stove:-(
Oh, and there was an apricot pie disaster this year...I can't really talk about it yet. Sniffle.
