I am here!I'm still cooking, though lately the mood has been on and off, so many dinners have consisted of frozen pizza, grilled cheese, or scrambled eggs. In between my cooking lulls, I've managed to put together a few delicious, noteworthy (or at least photo-worthy)
meals.Here in Seattle,…
Delicious Bean Dip
Bean Dip With Hearty Chips
Lemon Garlic Breaded Chicken
Lemon Garlic Breaded Chicken & Mashed Potatoes
I'm a picky eater who likes to sometimes try new things, if that makes sense. Life isn't only about cooking, however, as I enjoy spending time with my Chihuahua, reading, movies, decorating my condo, lots of t.v. shows, etc.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite go-to meal is home fried potatoes and tofu with tons of veggies and fresh herbs. I also love fresh juice, especially kale, parsley, and green apples.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mom cooked pretty much traditional American Midwest food....burgers, spaghetti & meatballs, things like that. but everything she made was delicious! family gatherings and holidays were always filled with tons of homemade food - no boxed mashed potatoes in my house!
My cooking triumphs
see blog entry "The Chicken Incident"
also, any time I can make something without measuring - when it's totally by instinct, I consider that a success.
My cooking tragedies
I don't know.....anything overcooked or too dry....basically when I've had any cooking tragedy in the past, it was because I wasn't really into cooking at that moment! you've really got to cook with love or it won't turn out!
