I love to cook. I have been cooking for my husband for more than 13 years now. I enjoy cooking for family and friends. I strive to be as good a cook as my mom.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with new recipes so I guess it depends on my mood. Sometimes baking, sometimes casseroles, sometimes meats, etc. I cook chicken a lot. I like it baked, fried, grilled, in soups...just about any way you can cook it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with family for all the major holidays and having wonderful meals. No one can ever go hungry with all the food that's prepared.
My cooking triumphs
One that stands out in my mind is the first meal I made my husband (my boyfriend at the time). It was my first time making fried chicken and it turned out great. He loved it. I guess the saying is true that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. :)
My cooking tragedies
Learning to cook on an electric stove (I was taught on a gas stove). My poor husband had a lot of burnt meals when we first got married. :(
