I am a Texan, a Wife, and a Police Officer. The kitchen is my santuary and there is nothing quite like making bread with your own two hands. My love of cooking is due in large part to my MoM. You should see her blog!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food, Italian (is there a difference between the two?), and whatever strikes my fancy at the time! I go through "bouts" of things- spagetti ala carbonara was a memorable one...
My favorite family cooking traditions
In 1991 my Grandfather complained that he didn't want 'more' turkey for Christmas. So, every Christmas since, my family cooks wonderful dishes from different country- the country is chosen by vote. It's been a wonderful learning experience for everyone.
My cooking triumphs
I think if my family wants whatever it is again, it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
LOL. There have been a few.
