Blissfully married w/ a teenage son. All three of us enjoy cooking. Hubby is a great chef and usually does all the cooking on the weekends. Living in busy So Cal it's very important to find time to spend together and cooking is a fun way to do so.
My favorite things to cook
I'm really into flavors right now. Experimenting with them & finding good contrasts. I love trying new recipes those are my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner. We get up early, take a walk on the beach w/our Starbuck's, then home to get cooking. The whole family joins in (b/c if they aren't cooking, they're cleaning)We always say we'll get another walk in after dinner, but it never happens.
My cooking triumphs
I was 14 and sometimes would make dinner b/c my folks had to commute. This particular day was Valentine's Day. I made heart-shaped hamburgers, corn and french fries. They loved it, so I was very pleased with myself.
My cooking tragedies
I make these really great creamy chicken enchiladas. I was cooking for my in-laws for the first time. We all like really spicy food, so I wanted to spice it up a bit. Ooops much more habanero sauce than I wanted ended up in the mix. The only one who would eat them was Hubby.
