Single lady (but dating a wonderful guy) who loves to cook but never has enough time. I love getting an idea and then looking through recipes as a base and then mixing up to my own tastes. My friends and family give me cookbooks and I read them like novels.
My favorite things to cook
I love, love, love Italian food. I also prefer to cook dishes that can be prepared in 1-2 pots. I recently obtained a small and large slow cooker and am really enjoying trying out recipes using them. My secret obsession is sandwiches. Ssssshhhhh!
My cooking triumphs
I can finally poach an egg. YAY!!
My cooking tragedies
Does not realizing a pot holder was stuck to the bottom of a pan before I placed it on the burner count? I still can smell the smoke, ugh!
