My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking soups and stews...any kind, there's never a recipe, and they're always good. I also make a pretty mean pasta, home made pasta is much simpler than you'd think.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family cooking traditions aren't passed down. When I go home, I eat food that I don't normally make. My family's German (I was born there), and some favorites are Rouladin, Spaetzle, pfannekuchen (crepe like pancakes), chicken fricasse, and although not German, Beef Wellington...MMMmmm.
My cooking triumphs
A chocolate raspberry mouse torte...this small, 9" torte, used almost 1lb of raspberries. Worth every single last one we put into it. This was the best cake/pie/torte I've ever tasted. Period. Thanks Canadian Living Magazine.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention, the down side of thinking you're more creative than you are!! LOL
