i love to cook and experiment with recipes. i try to make them more healty without losing the flavor. i usually succeed.
i sometimes find myself cooking for no real reason~~it relaxes me and for me, there isn't anything i love more than cooking, drinking a little wine and listening to the blues!
My favorite things to cook
zucchini 'crab' cakes, vegetarian egg rolls, tostadas, fish tacos, anything mexican. i'm not vegetarian but I do a lot of vegetarian cooking for my vege son
My favorite family cooking traditions
weekend breakfasts and family get togethers. the get togethers don't happen often enough but when they do i try to go all out ~~ interesting appetizers and something everyone will love
My cooking triumphs
starting a catering company (with a couple partners) up in just 2 days. that was quite a chore. after a year in business we had quite a following. it was very fulfilling to see people coming back for more of my cooking and raving about it! it got to be too much work and i had to get out. that was one way of getting me to DREAD cooking. i like doing it for pleasure, not for money
My cooking tragedies
corned beef and cabbage once....I'll never make it again. We all grossed out! My young son said, 'mom, dont ever make that again ok' lol
