I don't eat red meat and eat a lower Saturated fat diet (Trans free if at all possible). I began this diet to help control my Multiple Sclerosis mid to late 2008.
My favorite things to cook
Currently, fish, as I'm just discovering the wonderful world of fish (I'm allergic to shellfish, but fresh water, catfish, good to go!). I also love to bake, and it's fun to modify recipes to see what works and how low in the 'bad fats' a recipe can be and still 'work'!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
My first apple pie, and crust from scratch. The crust was a nightmare to work (I never imagined it would be so difficult!) but it turned out fantastic!
My cooking tragedies
A poor University student cooking up some Uncle Ben's white rice and placing dulce on it, as it's all we had in the apartment. What were we thinking?? It was awful, but we laughed so hard we cried and still ate it!
