My favorite things to cook
Fish and seafood are my favorite things to cook. My husband is more
of a meat person so that's a big part of my cooking too. Both of my
daughters, as well as myself, are very conscious of our calories and
fat grams. So healthy cooking/eating is a must for us. Even though
we do splurge for a great dessert every so often.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Summer time is a huge entertaining time for our family. So other than
the normal holidays I'd say the outdoor grill arena is a big cooking
and celebrating time for us.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I brined a turkey that came out like a pro was a big
triumph for me. I was so worried about it not being edible that I
had a huge ham just in case!
My cooking tragedies
MANY and I mean MANY years ago when I was first married my in-laws
came to our house for a New Years Day dinner. I made black eyed peas that
ended up like paste. Obviously overcooked them! Also the first fried egg I ever tried cooking was so undercooked that my sister-in-law, in a very nice way, said "let me help you with that" and she cooked another one for my husband.
