I am a self-taught cook and still learning, trying new things, some successful and some not. I can't get enough of the Food Network. I love to watch the hosts and then try their recipes or create my own.
My favorite things to cook
Pastas are a great way to be creative and add lots of flavors and textures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Trying to pry my mom's recipes from her. Hopefully, my daughters will one day be asking for mine.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that satisfies my family and puts a smile on their faces.
My cooking tragedies
Banana bread - I confused teaspoons with tablespoons. Let's just say it was a little SALTY.
