I have benn cooking over 30 years but I stopped eating meat about 3 months ago. I also do not eat dairy except eggs that are poached or hardboiled. My husband is a redmeat redneck so I still cook meat for him and our two boys sometimes. They love most of the veggie dishes I make.I am getting better all the time.
My favorite things to cook
Veggies of course! I love to try new recipes. I love to try new sauces for different cold salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have to have Apple & Pea salad on holidays. Always Turkey for Thanksgiving and Ham for Easter. We use my moms ham recipe. Christmas is a roast with all the fixings and a ham. Our oldest daughter always makes fudge. Our son has mastered the family Tri-tip secret!
My cooking triumphs
I am an avid juicer. Anything that the boys will drink is a triumph! My hubby rates my dishes in this order: Keeper, Doable, Tolerable and Thumbs down.
My cooking tragedies
I made a Saffron & rice dish and my Hubby gave it a thumbs down. He does not like the saffron. The boys did not like it either but I liked it. :)
