My protein loving family has diverse preference for their meal: My husband likes seafood and not pork, my teen the opposite, while I can eat just the "rabbit food" everyday - all year long. Throw in a finiky toddler, and well, you get the picture. So I get creative, AND have to cook it fast. And that's why it's so much more fun to have people over, just so that I can justify why I made so many different kind of food!
My favorite things to cook
Fusion cooking! Lemon grass, basil, cilantros, peppers of all kind, and oh, the things I can do with rotissory chicken from the club store...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Invite'em over first, do mad cleaning/streatening up, then cook like a fiend.
My cooking triumphs
Winning first place medal is just an icing on the cake!
My cooking tragedies
It's the garlic Texas Toasts from the grocer's freezer that I've burnt my share!
