Never learned to cook until after i was married. Didn't feel like cooking, order take out. after years of this and then having kids began to realize how expensive it was and unhealthy. Proud to say down to take-out maybe twice a month, everything else is from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
Anything my kids and husband love.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Easter at my Mother's must have Ham and Scalloped potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
soup, i tried for years to make a good soup and all it ever
tasted like was boiled water.Since trying some of the recipes on this site i can do at least 8 soups that have a good balanced flavour.
My cooking tragedies
chinese food from scratch, yuck.
i do tend to work on a recipe until its perfect so not many tragedies stay a tragedie but chinese food was just simplier and cheaper to order take-out.
