My favorite things to cook
I love to cook a complete meal. Nothing fancy, just good food; even better when everyone in the family likes it (there are different preferences, likes/dislikes which can be a challenge.)
Always looking for healthy. A balanced meal that has some meat (protein,) hopefully not too much fat.
The less healthy a portion of the meal is, the more I like to balance the meal out with healthy vegies! It's always great when low-fat items can be substituted for higher-fat, and still get a great taste! Healthify recipes whenever possible!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Involve the kids, especially as they get older so they can be self-sufficient.
My cooking triumphs
Making many lasagnas at once, like a conveyor line (sauce from scratch) for family and freezer.
My cooking tragedies
Stuffed peppers. We still joke about those stuffed peppers I cooked in the microwave (used the cookbook that came with the microwave) that tasted so horrible.
