Joined the ranks of the unemployed this year.... but finding great economical recipes that taste better than the fancy places we used to eat!
My favorite things to cook
so far crepes gateau, fabby red meat sauce and white bechamel sauce... yummy... it took and entire day to make.
But it turned out perfect. (1st time I ever made crepes.. now they are a staple)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to make 2-3 dozen cookies every day from Thanksgiving until Christmas for me and my 9 bro's and sisters, plus bus drivers, teachers, neighbors, friends & church members.... etc & everyone LOVED them (and her!)
My cooking triumphs
when i found the "secret" to shrimp scampi that tastes like carrabbas!
My cooking tragedies
usually bread ... the whole yeast/salt flour thing is a mystery to me...
why does it sometimes come out great? other times it's just hot bread still yummy but a little flat :-O)
