I like trying new recipes and using fruits and vegetables that are in-season. I like a lot of really good flavor and using herbs and spices. I am seeking healthy versions of unhealthy recipes and more knowledge in nutrition, health, and beauty.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican foods and Southern cuisine. I do a lot of baking like, banana bread and healthy cookies. I make really good chicken, egg, or tuna salad. I love making fresh garden salads and soups, like potato soup and stew. I love a good corn bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always had garden fresh vegetables and a kettle of pinto beans with homemade buttermilk cornbread! Fresh green beans, corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, onions, potatoes...yum!
My cooking triumphs
I am better at finding recipes and knowing what cooking utensils I need and how to use them than before. My confidence as a cook has grown with more experience cooking meals.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes, I misread a recipe and I skip a step or add too much of something! Recently, I made a berry cobbler and the bread was like gelatin!
