I'm a work from home, new mom, and anything to do with the kitchen or my grill, is one of the things I enjoy the most. I like trying new things and succeeding at things I never thought I'd be able to do! I cook what I love to eat and I eat what I love to cook!
My favorite things to cook
I like grilling meat and veggies, making desserts, and dinners for crowds. I love most to make stuff that my husband likes --- he's very rewarding to cook for :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade soups, cornflake cookies, etc ---
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a roast beef was my biggest triumph. I was worried it was going to be overdone but it turned out perfect - just pink and tender, and delicious.
My cooking tragedies
The best way to remember how to make something is to mess it up once! I've had several big boo-boos, but they've chaulked up to lots of good experience. A couple of incidences that come to mind are my Hawaiian bread that was gooey in the centre and my Banana Cream Pie that turned out to be Banana Cream SOUP!
