I am cooking for my 2 year old son, and my husband... and all hubby's bachelor friends that miss mom's home cooking! I was a vegetarian for 5 years so I am exploring the world of preparing meat for the for the first time in my adult life.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make sauces. I think a great sauce is what makes a dish great. I'm still working to perfect my roux, and experimenting with cheese sauces now. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Summer spaghetti (olive oil, garlic, sliced garden tomatoes, and fresh basil tossed with pasta)... and cookie mania during the holidays!
My cooking triumphs
I made a tasty mac and cheese (without Velveeta) that my son gobbled up.... he hates eating! top score!
My cooking tragedies
lesson learned, when making dipping chocolate for chocolate covered strawberries..... water does NOT thin the melting chocolate. that mucky, granulated mess went straight to the bin. And I went back to the store to buy more chocolate and start over!
