Since I got laid off in February 2010 I've been keeping busy cooking 3 meals a day!! My husband and I have both gained _ _ pounds so far. I'm now cooking healthier and its working!! We both feel and look better. We've got a way to go and allrecipes is a great place to find healthy recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat and cook all food. - That was my first comment when I joined....Now I'll say my favorite thing to cook are vegetable dishes that don't make you miss having meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To cook together as a family...makes the cooking go faster and everyone gets input to how and what gets cooked. My mother was a wonderful cook....she cooked everything well and had some standards that were always birthday requests from all of us kids. I haven't been able to recreate any of her cooking as she rarely used a recipe and when she did she rarely followed it exactly.
My cooking triumphs
Then: I'm so busy that now I get excited when I just get to cook and it comes out well.
Now: Not so busy anymore. I have been brushing up on my cooking skills and pulling out some equipment and tools I haven't used in years. There have been some real catastrophes, but I've been doing pretty well and would say I'm around 95% successful in making meals that both my husband and I enjoy.
My cooking tragedies
Then - I seem to have more of them lately...I don't leave well enough alone and over-salt, over-spice, over-cook or over-something quite a few dishes.
Now - i still can't seem to try a recipe as its written..even the first time to see if it is good or not. My modifications work most of the time, and get better the more practice I get.
