I grew up in in a house where good food and meals were as routine as taking out the trash. Now thaI'm living on my own I had to learn how to duplicate the wonderful meals I had growing up. Watch out Mom, you're not the only cook in the kitchen anymore!! = )
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything TWICE, absoloutley every recipie has a little room for your own personal tweak ~! That's what makes it so fun to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is better than Christmas in my house, EVERYONE gets into the mix to help out and when we sit down to eat it takes hours! Is it November yet?
My cooking triumphs
The first year I moved to Texas I made Christmas dinner for my boyfriend (now husband)and his 5year old son. Filet mignon with a bacon shallot cream sauce, mashed potatoes ,the whole 9 yards! It was just the 3 of us that year and I missed my family in NJ terribly but that meal turned out perfectly and made TX and the people I was with feel like home. To this day I think that meal 3 months into our relationship 'sealed the deal' . : )
My cooking tragedies
oh geeze, all I have to say is..ya' know those handy recipes on the back of soup cans? well: mushroom soup,chicken,yeah that's it. It was gross, I am no longer so timid w/ my seasoning.
