I'm 63 and don't claim to be a great cook, I've gotten by with little complaint. Now I need to learn to cook healthier,and most of my cooking has always been country type cooking. I love new recipes from different cuisines. I don't know how to cook Asian type food but would loved to learn, since I love a allot of their foods. Same with Mexican food. I just recently got a computer so this has opened me up to all different means of expanding my recipe box.
My favorite things to cook
I tend to cook comfort food, such as meatloaf, pot roast, chili, and so on. Now I am a Diabetic and have to learn how to cook all over again. That is one big reason I have started to check all these different recipe site and I'm enjoying the new experience.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions?? I'm actually from CA. and I don't remember any family traditions.My mother was a Southern cook and mainly cooked comfort type food, she wanted her foods tasty and if you fell back in your chair and rub your stomach showing you enjoyed the meal and you were full then her job was complete. I guess that's one tradition I happily carried on. Other than that I'm not sure what to write.
My cooking triumphs
I guess one of my cooking triumphs was when my son was just a year old I bake him a cake for his first birthday party and followed the directions to make a cake in the shape of a loin. After I was finished, it was perfect, and I never made anything and had it turn out exactly the way it was suppose to look. Most of time something wouldn't look right, but this cake look exactly like the one pictured.
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies, although I know there has to be to many to count, I can't think of a one. Maybe it's selective memories I'm not sure, after all I am 63 and you know us old people and our memories.
