I just fed the family a perfectly lovely concoction that was loosely described as a stir-fry served over brown basmati rice. It was tasty, loaded with veggies and filling.My problem at this point: I. WANT. JUNK! The sweet beast must be fed! This, to be exact:…
I used to be scared to cook, especially since I couldn't even do "Rice A Roni" correctly, now I know that if you read directions properly and do what they say, it's a rare thing to have a recipe not turn out. I'm excited to finally be at the point where I can experiment in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I really will try to cook anything at least once, and I think that overall I enjoy the experience of cooking more than anything. Of course having something yummy to eat at the end of the experience is good, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mostly comfort foods like Turkey or Chicken and Noodles, Pasty, etc.
My cooking triumphs
General Tso's Chicken! After receiving a basic recipe from a friend, I scoured the internet for others and did comparisons. First on paper, then on the stove. After several attempts and tweaks, I have a recipe that is spot-on for my favorite Chinese takeout! And then there's the Tiramisu...
My cooking tragedies
I would be remiss if I didn't say there have been some major yucks: including a goat meat dish! Rather than dwell though, I build on what I can only see as experience. "Well, I know to not do THAT again!"
