I'm a new mom. My work only allows me to cook three nights a week - so I try to make them count.
My favorite things to cook
I haven't put in any recipes yet but I love to make pasta (spaghetti & vodka pasta), tacos (no recipe necessary), enchiladas, casseroles (chicken divine & tuna) and I make a great white chili.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can't think of any, but to fill in space my favorite cookbook is "How to Cook Without a Book" by Pamela Anderson (a different Pamela Anderson obviously). My mom gave it to me and it's easily the dirtiest one I own.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my husband says, "Let's put this into the rotation" I consider it a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I made a panfried halibut once that my husband was ok with, but I hated it. Turned me off of cooking fish actually.
