Love to cook, but am not a recipe follower-don't fence me in! I like to use recipes as guide-posts and add more or less of this or that to make it my very own. Except with baking, of course-found out that doesn't work as well, so I do follow baking recipes. Cooking is very creative to me, and it is very satisfying when my hubby and family loves something I have made.
My favorite things to cook
I love all-day cooking; like slow-cookers and soup, I piddle around the house with the incredible smells from the pot and go over to give the pot a stir and a taste, maybe adding more spices-it is relaxing and oh-so fullfilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandparents owned a Grocery Store and both loved to cook; they would often sell homemade items in the store like Grandpa's famous fudge and Grandma's homemade bread.
My cooking triumphs
Made-from-Scratch Chicken Enchiladas
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I over salt...I have a salt-tooth-says my husband.
