Homemaker for the first time in 49 years. Enjoying making foods that my husband loves while feeding him things that are also good for him.
My favorite things to cook
Currently into making breads, trying new techniques with meats, attempting different sauces and taking inexpensive or sale foods and making something tasty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pizza for New Year's Eve. Been trying several different homemade pizza crusts. It's becoming easier to plan and make pizza instead of purchase ready-mades. The flavor is so much better.
My cooking triumphs
I created a cake recipe for my FIL's birthday and it was well received. I figure anything that either 1) the kids ask for or 2) there are no leftovers, that's a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Attempting to make something similar to Taco Bell's Steak Taco. I also used cauliflower to make cheese sauce for potatoes, but I think my hubby had an idea something was up. Maybe try again with homemade mac'n'cheese.
