I lived @ home for a long time, worked two jobs and raised two kids. My mom did most of the cooking since I was always on the go with the kids and working, so now I would like to try the art of cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake nut breads. mexican dishes are a favorite and the slow cooker has become my friend.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I had a couple recipes that were passed down thru the years that my grandma gave me, such as carrot cake made in a bundt pan with a butter glaze and p.b. fudge, but I lost my cookbook when I moved.
My cooking triumphs
I still have my ups and downs of what I can cook right. MY kids are grown but I still work two jobs so cooking experience is coming slowly. My boyfriend, however, likes my chili and cornbread.
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy, I dont think I will live this one down. I tried to cook venecin (deer meat) for the first time last week and we could have used it to re-sole the bottoms of our shoes. My boyfriend said to leave it up to him to cook it next time. He is a much better cook than I am. But when he works 12-14 hrs. he appreciates when supper is ready when he gets home. I am only there 2-3 days a wk cause we live an hr apart.
