My favorite things to cook
I just love food! Although I'm learning to really love cooking and all of the great food and flavor combinations, my favorite thing to do is bake. I love to make cookies, cakes, brownies, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was a spectacular cook. We had fresh baked goods every day, sunday spaghetti dinner, warm winter chili with a side of white bread with butter and grape jelly. The best day of the year was Thanksgiving - every single item was homemade... including the delicious gooey cinnamon buns we ate in the middle of the night while waiting on the turkey in the oven!
My cooking triumphs
Butterflied, semi-boneless lamb, with a balsamic and apricot sauce. OMG! So amazingly delicious.
Homemade crab cakes & perfectly cooked filet mignon with a port reduction.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken in peanut sauce... I forgot to compensate for the sodium in the soy sauce and added WAY TOO MUCH salt! Gross, had to throw the whole meal out and start from scratch.
