Cooking With Steve
My husband loves to cook. Which is a great thing for me and the rest of the fam. 🙂 Generally, I also find it rewarding to put something yummy on the dinner table for the family. My husband and I each have our own specialties: the kids claim my soup is better (I think it’s because I do a lot of finessing and don’t follow exact rules) but my husband is undeniably the king of candy-making and anything that is very exacting and more like a chemistry experiment.
Over the years, his cooking has evolved, and he has created a plethora of family favorite recipes. I’m sharing those with you here in a new feature, Cooking With Steve.
