I try to cook every chance I get. My family knows that I like to try new recipes, and I take my list of ingredients with me every time I go grocery shopping.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna (my moms recipe)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving we always bring a traditional side dish and one new dish. I always make my cream cheese mashed potatoes. One year my new dish was a cranberry sauce I found on all recipes, everybody loved it. Now I have to make it every year. So long, canned Ocean Spray.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband and I were dating, he came over to my house and I made him dinner for the first time. It was a pork dish with a spicy salsa, rice and beans. He says it was the best meal I ever made for him. I have never been able to make it the same way since.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count
