My favorite things to cook
Soups, cookies, vegetable main dishes, spicy stuff, anything I can double the cheese on, anything cream cheese based, and food with ingrediants I've never heard of before. I refuse to touch raw meat so I tend to stay pretty healthy besides dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making rice pudding with my mom every year. It's the most time intensive recipe I've ever seen (it takes 2 hours!), but it's amazing!
My cooking triumphs
I hosted Thanksgiving dinner last year (2009). It was a lot of fun and everything turned out great. I'd never cooked meat before so a 20 pouund turkey seemed a little daunting at first :o)
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting to check the oven before I turned it on as a teenager. I destroyed a fair amount of my parent's tupperware that way.
