I am a new mom, well my son Manny was born 7 months ago. I am just getting back into cooking more elaborate dishes now that he can play by himself for a little while. He loves to watch me cook (for the most part). I have been married for almost 5 years and enjoy cooking for my husband and our friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to have a recipe and make it my own by changing this ingredient or substituting different ingredients. I like to cook chicken dishes, soups, I do a lot of cooking from my Grandmothers recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook at a very young age by watching/helping my Grandmother. She always made homemade bread, cookies and everything was from "scratch"
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can get my husband to eat my cooking is a triumph. He is very picky.
My cooking tragedies
There have been quite a few. From overcooking to undercooking to adding the wrong ingredients...I could go on.
