Cooking relaxes me. If I have a hard day at the office, I just love to come home and cook a big meal. My husband loves it too.
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook stir-fry, spaghetti sauce and big pots of soup. Creating new recipes for chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking the holiday cookies and candies.
My cooking triumphs
Seeing a dish at a restaurant or in a magazine and then going home and duplicating it without a recipe.
My cooking tragedies
A few years ago, I was making beef stew in the crock pot. I wanted to thicken it up without using flour so I went to the store and picked up what I thought was cornstarch. (I bought it in bulk) I used about 1/4 cup and stirred it in. It turned out to be cornmeal.
