My favorite things to cook
I love cooking for others, so as long as I know what I cook will be enjoyed I'll cook anything with few exceptions.
My cooking triumphs
Any of the themed parties were hits. I did hamburgers on the grill and had different areas with coordinating toppings, like aioli and gruyere cheese and tomatoe slices...guacamole and queso fresco and pico de gallo...and of course the traditional toppings too. For dessert I did fruit salad and a spicy mango salsa to accompany with vanilla icecream.
My cooking tragedies
There were two...a very dry turkey one thanksgiving long ago using an oven I wasn't used to, and the other was my first try making mushroom soup...no amount of sherry would fix it!
