My favorite family cooking traditions
I fix Christmas Eve dinner for my husband's family every year.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Dinner 2010. My first time hosting Thanksgiving, I made the entire meal by myself except for the rolls, and I can honestly say I nailed it! Roasted turkey, homemade noodles (great-grandma's recipe), homemade cranberry sauce, green beans, mashed potatoes, and buttered corn. The bowl of cranberry sauce from one off the tables was actually licked clean! It was fun to cook the meal, and having everyone love it so much was an amazing feeling. I love holiday cooking!
My cooking tragedies
I tried making cream cheese frosting for the first time. It was for my husband's birthday cake. I failed miserably. No where near enough sugar, and the consistency wasn't right. It was also the first time I iced a layered cake. Needless to say it was NOT edible, but my husband and I laughed a whole lot. I've since decided that I'm not a fan of cream cheese frosting no matter who makes it, so my next homemade icing attempt will be buttercream. Hopefully it works out much better.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
Loved this crust! I used instant yeast & put all ingredients in my stand mixer with dough hook. Mixed on lowest speed for 4-5 minutes. Let dough rest about 10 minutes. Spread into an oiled cast iron skillet that I had pre-warmed a bit, and it turned out great! Next time I think I'll bake the crust for about 5 minutes before adding the toppings (putting it in the skillet made for a thick crust that could use a little longer cooking time). Definitely making this again!

Kentucky Biscuits
These were decent, but just didn't turn out quite like I thought they would. I might try making them again with a little less butter. This was my first attempt at homemade biscuits, so considering that, they were pretty good :-)

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
My husband and I loved these! I left out the brown sugar, and used a little more salsa...not sure how much, just a couple extra spoonfulls because we love salsa. I heated them in the oven instead of a skillet so they'd be done at the same time. Buttered two cookie sheets, laid down 4 of the tortillas, layered cheese, filling, more cheese, top tortillas. I brushed the top tortillas with a little melted butter, baked at 350 for 9 minutes and then broiled on low for about 2 minutes. Delicious!!!
