I bake a lot but since I moved in with my boyfriend, I had to be an all-around cook. His family won't leave after I've started cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love roasting chicken because it's easy and always turns out well, and soup is fun because it is so versatile. Regardless of that, cookies are still my favorite, because they're just so much fun to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili is a big family tradition, but I think that goes for everyone. Our biggest tradition is breakfast; we do Christmas breakfast instead of dinner, special occasions always call for a big southern breakfast, and we always stuff ourselves so much we hardly have room for dinner that night.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest accomplishments are all involving last-minute meals. I throw whatever smells good together in a pot and cook it, and it usually comes out great.
My cooking tragedies
Well...remember when I said that I put whatever smells good in a pot and it usually comes out great? Usually is the keyword there. I tried making a chicken pot pie and I improvised a little too much...that's the only thing I've had to throw out.
