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!
