it's me and my Marco with our three cats. I love to wing it in the kitchen. I always choose a few diferent recipes, study up on the reviews and use the hints from everything to cook. Not to bake, however. Baking is a science. I know this because I learnt from my early mistakes where I succsessfully made pavement and The Cookie That Wouldn't Set Up. Cooking is like art.
My favorite things to cook
I always seem to gravitate to italian dishes, however I am loving me some Thai food recently. I'm also experimenting with Tofu, which has had it's mixed results. I always have time for tried and trues, and my busy lifestyle is BUILT for the casseroles made on Sunday to be eaten on Wed.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was never a very good cook, nor did she ever have time, so I long for the super sodium packed Mac n cheese or frank n beans, or my absolute favorite SUPER sodium bomb: canned tuna with canned peas in mac n cheese. mmm mm hyper-tension!
My cooking triumphs
any time i make steak and it comes out not horrible i'm amazed at myself. I also remember being VERY proud at making peanut butter bread in the microwave when i was 12. Looking back it was a chewy, flour-y, nasty mess, but i was SO PROUD
My cooking tragedies
The only one I can really remember is when i forgot I was making steamed veggies. I came back an hour later to veggie shapped carbon.
