I love to bake but am new to cooking anything that doesn't require hitting a button on the microwave. I look forward to improving my cooking skills!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey dinner is something only served during special occasions and only when there is a large crowd to share it with. I have tried my hand at a small chicken dinner to practice but have yet to get all the elements of the dinner on the table at the same time.
My cooking triumphs
I finally mastered my mother-in-laws lasagna recipe! It was really hard to do since she's been cooking forever and follows the recipe in her head. I had to actually watch her make it a couple of times and take notes because she couldn't tell me what she did without going through the steps. I knew I did it right when my husband told me it was "just like moms"!
My cooking tragedies
I've turned on the wrong burner a couple of times and once melted a spatula in an empty pot which caused my kitchen to fill with black smoke.
