I am a mom, wife and aunt. I love to cook dinner for my family most every night (I might take a weekend day off). It might be late in the evening but we do eat together. Family is the most important thing to me!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite is my Chicken Enchilada Suizas (I have that recipe posted here). Everyone loves it so I love cooking it for my family and friends. I also love homemade chicken pot pie. I also am the one that bakes majority all the x-mas desserts for both mine and my hubby's family. Love it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not really a cooking tradition, but every Christmas eve I am the one that makes the santa cookies with the kids, (my daughter, nieces, nephew and the neighbor kids). I love it. One thing we always do is cook TOO much!!! Every holiday my mom says we aren't going to cook this much next year, lol. We end up finding some new recipes and cook even more.
My cooking triumphs
I don't think there is a cooking triumph. I'll have to think about that.
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies, well I am an ok cook. I like to bake from scratch. I like homemade pot pie and homemade desserts but I can not for the life of me make gravy. I can make pie crust but I can't make gravy, guess I will just have to stick to the jars (or ask my mom to stop by and make it for me).
