I'm a multi-tasker. I work and go to school. *-* TIP: Have your significant other look through your most often used recipe book. Have colored post-it tags and a pen/pencil on hand and instruct your SO to signify his/her liking for certain foods: Red tags could mean "Eat on rare occasion"; Blue, "Once a week"; Green -"Everyday", Yellow "Every other day." If there's other commentary your SO would like to include, he/she can write on the colored tag. My SO did this and indicated that he'd like to try certain recipes he'd never had before, that some dishes were for special occasions only, some required substitutions and/or abstinence from the inclusion of a particular ingredient he didn't like or a different version (EX: for apple pie, he wrote "Grandma's recipe!".)
My favorite things to cook
Pancakes, waffles, muffins, steak, rice balls, burritos, broccoli, asparagus, carrots
My favorite family cooking traditions
- Baking sugar cookies and snowball cookies (aka tea cookies). I've improved on the tradition recently on the snowballs for some fantastically festive fare.
My cooking triumphs
- Cooking something fiance likes is always a triumph
- Deliciously refreshing pancakes with peppermint extract
- Awesome pumpkin muffins made with white chocolate chips
- Easy chili-mac that my brothers couldn't get enough of
- Near industrial sized batch of chocolate chip cookies for a bake sale
-Iced sugar cookies intended to appeal to little ones that turned out to be a hit with the adults.
-Hot cocoa from scratch with cayenne pepper!!!
My cooking tragedies
- Seized chocolate is a shame. And veggie oil to reverse it makes it taste awfully cheap.
