My favorite family cooking traditions
As a kid when I cooked for my father, he told me everything was delicious. Even the blackened burned cookies which he choked down after breaking them up into a bowl and pouring some milk on them. He never discouraged me, no matter what cooking disaster I presented to him. He always appreciated my effort. He ate all my mistakes and devoured all my successes. He was the best.
My cooking triumphs
People devour my lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
The usual: my first turkey. Also had a problem with a pressure cooker once, it was pretty ugly.
