I get easily bored with cooking when I am not creating something new. My husband likes boring food. I often make two different meals. Sometimes when I try to make one of my bigger successes again, I can't remmeber how I did it.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican and Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
Labor Day the family all brings food to contribute and cook. Makes it easy on me.
My cooking triumphs
Finally made a pizza crust that both my husband and I like. Have learned to not put too many ingredients on.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making pizzas on pizza stones. I made the crust in my breadmaker(never again). I thought I could roll it out and assemble on the cupboard that was not floured enough. I have pizza peels now and use cornmeal. Burned myself on the stone. Used an ointment. Got the pizza on the stone with some overlapping. Made a mess in the oven. Set the smoke alarms off. Looked closer to a casserole. Upon removing all from the oven, discvered the ointment had stuck to the stone and baked into it. I can only laugh now. Better than the tears I shed then.
