I?ve been using ?Zaar? website for the last year but ready to commit myself to adding my two cents worth (including some photos). I live with my DH and two great kids and one crazy dog in the foothills of Colorado. We have a great view with lots deer and red rocks. I come from a food-loving family, including my nearby sister who is willing to discuss "what's for dinner" first thing in the morning! I?ve loved cooking every since I was a teenager. I don?t work so I have lots of time to cook my latest craving. I love to try and duplicate dishes I enjoy from restaurants. I have a lot of cookbooks, but now use mostly ?Zaar? recipes and from ?Cooks Illustrated.? I love reading cookbooks (library) and like the old classics from Betty Crocker to backs of food labels. I love to research lots of recipes before I decide which one to make.
I love comfort foods including: whole grain pancakes and waffles (topped with walnuts,bananas, and real maple syrup, any vegetable dish, pastas (including meatballs, veggies, Asian), salads with nuts, feta and a great vinaigrette, and anything with a crust. I have mastered making a home-made crust so I include that in my cooking.I love bakery-style muffins and cookies, too. Can you tell I love to eat? I love to intoduce my kids to a variety of foods and if I can sneak something healthy in it I do! I love making things in advance and do a shortened version of "Once A Month Cooking", which means I usually have the beginnings of a meal in my freezer (like chopped chicken, browned hamb., and breaded chicken) and a few fully prepared meals. My most used appliance is my pressure cooker, which saves me time in every meal (I cook my rice and pasta in there, too.) If you asked my family what they enjoy the best of my cooking, my kids would say rolls (daughter's absolute favorite)and chicken pot pie, pumpkin pie, and oatmeal cookies (my son's) and my husband loves my English Meat and Potato Pie (from his childhood).
