My ex-husband never gave me a chance to learn to cook and basically took over the kitchen. I'm now married to a wonderful man who enjoys my learning and experimenting, and we also have a great time cooking together.
My favorite things to cook
Eggs, pasta sauces, veggies...our current goal is finding good quick easy recipes that are low-salt and low-fat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister is 10 years older than me, so growing up I really only remember 3 people in the house. But my mom would cook or bake in bulk....a huge pot of traditional spaghetti sauce with meat, leftovers would be frozen in bags. She'd spend a day baking cookies...some were for us, some given to relatives, and again bags in the freezer :)
My cooking triumphs
I'm still nervous about cooking so whenever I'm complimented on a meal I consider it a triumph!
