I just got married April 2006. I have only been cooking for a couple years but I enjoy it very much and find it very relaxing after a stressful day at the office. Nothing is better than opening up a bottle of wine and cooking dinner for my husband as I wait for him to come home from work.
Since I work 12 hours a day, I am always looking for easy recipes with few ingredients so my trips to the supermarket are short and inexpensive.
My favorite things to cook
My husband is picky about the type of foods I cook. He likes less carby things and his favorite meal is Feta Stuffed Chicken so I try to accommodate him by making chicken at least 3 times a week. I personally love making low carb pasta with lowfat clam sauce, seared sesame tuna and variations of couscous with different ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am raised with Italian and Polish heritage. My favorite Polish recipe is spinach Pie - and I submitted "Susan's Spinach Pie" in honor of my Mom. I also love making Linguini with Clam sauce and Chicken Parmigana in honor of my Dad's side.
My cooking triumphs
I have only been cooking for a couple years but I have pulled of a few nice cocktail parties and dinners with over 6 people. I am also very proud of my ability to make a nice dinner with limited items of food in the house.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at decorating cookies and at making chicken in a frying pan for some reason! Also fish - I can do Tuna- thats about it!
