I have been a member here in allrecipes for such a long time and so much has happened in my life. I remember trying all these recipes because my guy, as you can see in "My favorite things to cook" section ... loved my cooking. Well My Neil passed away 3 days before Christmas 2013. and so much has changed. I miss him so very much, I miss how he really loved when I tried something new - a lot of which came from allrecipes. I don't cook as much anymore - I don't seem to have as much joy in it. but I do still love to share and look at the new recipes. meanwhile, thanks to all for the recipes my Neil loved.
My favorite things to cook
My Fiance's favorite - Spaghetti, homemade sauce w/ mushrooms & sausage and garlic bread! and weekend breakfasts :) its experiment time! and I love to make Casseroles and crock pot meals - I LOVE to try new things especially though!
My favorite family cooking traditions
very Eastern European and Finnish/Scandinavian - anyone for Lefse or Lihapiirakka? :-)
My cooking triumphs
Holiday dinners for 30 to 50 regularly (full sit down ones!)and a rave review from everyone.
My cooking tragedies
other than burning the bacon? Cant think of a thing! :-) oh, and leaving the gizzards in the turkey and the time the salad dressing exploded and... hmmm well - there are too many to list here. If it could happen it did! Murphy's Law :)
