I have always enjoyed making up my own recipes. Have usually had good luck... a few flops, but over all I do pretty well if I say so myself
My favorite things to cook
Mexican casseroles,desserts, and snack and party foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year I try to make stuffing like my mother made for Thanksgiving. I haven't matched it yet, but it is a tradition I always look forward to. My family suggests I just give up and make Stove Top. No way!!!
My cooking triumphs
I finally mastered Buffalo Wings at home that are so close to Hooter's, I may never spend $15.00 on their wings again. Now all I need to do is master their Buffalo Shrimp!
My cooking tragedies
A few of my stuffing attempts have been real losers.I tried to make a vegetable pasta dish one time. It was a recipe that I just dreamed up as I went along and the portion grew and grew. By the time I was finished I had a 2 gallon pot of some pretty yuckky tasting vegetable pasta. My husband and I were the only ones eating that night. Needless to say, I don't do much Italian cooking.
