I'm a long time lover of cooking and have been practicing for years. For a long time it was just me and my daughter so I didn't get a chance to really put my skills to use. I now have a hungry man to cook for and I'm enjoying all the new opportunities to try new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love to create gourmet meals at home, from all over the world.I always love new ways to cook veggies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother could make the most amazing turkey and then turn it into 3 other great dishes before it was totally gone. Her soup was to die for. I called her asking for a recipe for it. After hearing a little of this and a little of that I just tried it on my own and have gotten pretty darn good myself.
My cooking triumphs
Most new dishes I try turn out great but I am happy to say that I can now cook brussell sprouts so that they are beyond edible,they are delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot bake. Not to save my life. It's right there with keeping plants alive. I simply cannot do it. We are getting a kitchenaid mixer but the man will do the baking and I'll use it for sausage making!
