Been cooking for a few years now. Recently got back into baking; made a pumpkin dish for each Monday of October 2009.
My favorite things to cook
Soup. Tomato soup is still funnest.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with gas.
My cooking triumphs
Cooked the turkey, chicken, stuffing, grading, and pies for Thanksgiving dinner. Heirloom tomato soup. Broccoli & baked potato soup. Chicken pot pie & crust. Bacon wrapped filet mignon (even though I don't like bacon). Chicken curry soup. Chicken Parmesan. Pumpkin cake. Pumpkin curry.
My cooking tragedies
Combining a butter chicken recipe with a broccoli recipe and adding rice in ways that caused all the separate recipes to work against each other. Train wreck.
