I've had a couple dozen standby recipes that have always done the job. Then my daughter was born and I started making my own babyfood. I realized when it was time to switch her over to tablefood, that there was just WAY too much salt in a lot of my recipes. I still make those things but I'm really trying to venture out and try new things and healthier things, so that we can all eat the same meal instead of having to cook separate things for her.
My favorite things to cook
Brined meats. I love brined porkchops, brined turkey, brined chicken. Yum, yum. I to saute veggies in olive oil. I've recently started baking my own bread and I'll never buy store bought again! Same with pizza. Will never order another yucky delivery pizza after making my own from scratch!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
Having Christmas dinner 4 hours late because the prime rib wasn't done. Since then, I pay closer attention when checking cook times for bone-in vs boneless meat and I've invested in a probe thermometer.
