I'm finding that I prefer cooking food from the ground up instead of adding a can of this or instant that.
My favorite things to cook
Right now, anything that tastes good!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sugar Cookies. My family has a "secret" recipe (probably off the back of some box?) of sugar cookies that I need to get my hands on. I remember helping my mom make these by the score growing up.
My cooking triumphs
I made this really great red wine beef stew I found on the Food Network's website. Also, I'm getting progressively better at sourdough bread.
My cooking tragedies
Lasagna. So far, I completely suck at making lasagna, even if I follow my mom's awesome recipe.
