I am still learning how to cook. My husband taught me almost everything I know. I never really cooked anything until we met. Now I find it very exciting to cook, especially since my husband will eat just about anything. I can experiment a lot, and that's why I love this site!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make chili and Italian food (things that are tomatoey and oniony)! I also love wine, so any recipe that calls for wine is sure to be a good time:)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition that I can think of is baking sweets with my mother and sister for Christmas. We seem to try a new dessert recipe every year and always decorate sugar cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I consider every meal that someone else enjoys a triumph- World's Best Lasagna (from this site) is always a big hit!
My cooking tragedies
There are many. As a beginner, I did just about everything wrong.
