My goal is to cook something well enough that I can invite some people to dinner and have them feel like they've had a wonderful meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sons' families and I have "Fondue Night" where we serve Beer Cheese Fondue, Bourbon Dogs, and Cheese-Stuffed Mushrooms.
My mom always made a ton of cookies and stored them in tins outside or in the garage. We had cookies all the Christmas/New Year's season and handed out cookie plates to everyone!
My cooking triumphs
The day I cook something everyone raves about (in this lifetime).
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to mention...
