Living near the farmers market I love to cook with the fresh locally grown produce, meats and cheeses. I love to make everything from scratch and only occasionally use shortcuts. Making meal plans for a week is one way I keep myself sane. Helps me shop faster and stay away from the chips and candy! Also, knowing that I don't have to worry about what is for dinner lets me worry about everything else more effectively :)
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are anything that my family enjoys. Tasty and quick are priorities for me so I can spend more time with my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is the cook doesn't do dishes!
My cooking triumphs
I made a roasted chicken for my mother for Mother's Day. It was juicy and flavorful! And for father's day I asked my boyfriend if he could choose anything in the world to eat that day what would it be. It wasn't something at a restaurant, it was a dish I make for him all the time. He told me he loves it, I happily obliged and it came out the best I had ever made.
My cooking tragedies
Haven't had any of late, thank goodness!
