I've been cooking since I was a kid. I'm not super fancy, but I like good food. I just can't stand spending lots of money to eat out and getting sub-par food.
My favorite things to cook
Soup, apple crisp, guacamole, beer can chicken, ribs, Indian and Thai food. My husband loves Mexican and lots of hot spicy food in general.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents have a small orchard on their hobby farm. One tree makes apples that are perfect for apple sauce. I love making apple sauce with my mom.
My cooking triumphs
Apple crisp made with apples from my parents' orchard, served with a plain cheesecake and a bit of caramel sauce. Or just heated with vanilla ice cream.
My cooking tragedies
Curried tuna noodle casserole. Gross.
