I am just now starting to add recipes to allrecipes.com I have been a bit shy since I have read reviews where other people really rip into the recipes. However, my husband and kids are always asking me to write down my recipes, I decided to do it digitally instead of using the old recipe cards! I never really measure or write anything down and I doubt I make anything exactly the same twice so this may be a bit challenging for me! I have never made a recipe as it reads, I am famous for tweaking recipes or just making it up as I go. When I am asked "What's for dinner" my response is, I am not sure we will see what we end up with I am done.
My favorite things to cook
I love all food but I cook a lot of Asian and Indian inspired food. I almost always try to take a recipe and lean it down a little, saving calories and fat. I have a few ingredients I will not replace such as coconut milk, I do not like light coconut milk as it is too watered down for me and does not pack in the right punch of flavor. I really love ALL curries! I recently started dabbling in African food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking and candy making during Christmas, I spend the whole month of December doing it! I always make crab eggs benedict Christmas morning.
My cooking triumphs
Teaching myself to make Thai food and Indian food that tastes a lot like our favorite restaurants!
My cooking tragedies
Pie crust, sadly I still cannot make it! :(
