I'm a Christian. I was born in OK, raised mostly in CA and now I live in the Netherlands....blessed life!!! I have 3 grown "kids" in California and 2 "kids" (born of wonderful woman) here in the Netherlands. I'm blessed to be married to a wonderful Dutch man. I love to craft!!! I have become a pretty creative cook here in the Netherlands as I'm not able to get some of the things I was used to in the USA. I do love it here, though.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite is Mexican food and there are not very many "authentic" tasting Mexican restaurants here. However, I was blessed to have a neighbor in Calif that is of Mexican descent and she taught me several things. So, I always say that the best Mexican food here in the Netherlands is at my house (it's probably not true, tho...lol).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmmm....good question. It would probably be our "Okie Gravy". Otherwise, I'm not sure we have a cooking tradition in our family. I need to think longer on this one.
My cooking triumphs
Probably my enchilada sauce or my chili colorado :)
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to count!!!
