I started learning how to cook when my mom's health began to fail. Mom would set at the kitchen table and walk me through making lasagna or something like that While my mom hated to cook, she made pretty good food. I have been cooking for almost 4 years now although I consider myself a beginner. I enjoy the challenge of creating tasty but simple dishes. I don't have a sophisticated pallet, so I don't like to do fancy smanchy dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Any meat, prefer crockpot, love pot roast, hate onions and any kind of green, red, or yellow peppers :(
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have any to speak of
My cooking triumphs
Coming up with my own mac & cheese dish. Some similar dishes here, but mine is a little different as I use cheddar cheese soup and a different combo of spices/herbs. I once mad garlic cheese biscuts that were every bit as good, if not better, than the ones you get at Red Lobster.
My cooking tragedies
The first pot roast I ever made. Heat too high, not enough liquid. Don't have to tell you the rest
