I work to support my cooking habit.
I love to cook, and would spend my days in the kitchen if I could!
I love trying new recipes and challenging my culinary skills, but most of the time it comes down to throwing together a meal with whatever I can find around the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving 2012: Work kept us from family, so the mister and I had our own meal. My first attempt at a whole stuffed turkey turned out marvelously (if i say so myself!). There was crispy skin, juicy meat, and best of all, no food poisoning!
(side note: this is a thanksgiving many years after the disasters listed below)
My cooking tragedies
I added far too much black pepper to the green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. How much? Like no one would eat it, too much. Couple that with the time I made pumpkin pie with a graham cracker crust, or pumpkin cinnamon rolls that failed to rise (they were rocks), and it's a wonder I'm invited to Thanksgiving at all! :)
