This site has given me the reputation of being a good cook. Thanks everyone! Raised and living in So.Cal all my life, I love the warm summer months when the barbeque gets lots of use. My husband and I have raised 5 children,and we have 4 grandkids. Life is good, especially when you have a table of great food to share with people you love.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking family traditions. I love homemade soups and stews in the winter and salads in summer. Using herbs I have growing in my garden works for me too. I enjoy eating healthy and am trying to get more vegetables into my diet...and am trying to venture out into the unknown - like making Tofu Parmesan (from this site) and it was very good!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There's always a good Irish stew or cornbeef on St. Patty's Day, Norweigan Pancakes on Christmas morning that my husband makes, German Pork ribs with Sauerkraut and of course living in Southern California I grew up with a wonderful Mexican Stew my Irish mother would make along with tacos and Tortilla Soup that are always family favorites in our house.
My cooking tragedies
I can say I've joined the club that has cooked the turkey gizzards inside the bird on Thanksgiving Day.....and don't ever forget to take the plastic wrap off the meatloaf before you stick it in the oven.
