Just recently became a stay at home mom again. I have never liked to cook mainly because I only had to do it as a kid when it was around the holidays and it was always a rush to get things done. However, since I'm grown and don't have the rush to fix anything, I have started to enjoy it more.
My favorite things to cook
Pot roast in a slow cooker. It can simmer all day and always comes out great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma always made everything from scratch. She raised me, so I always had home cooked meals. My favorite thing she made was mashed potatoes. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas she made a HUGE dinner that was all homemade. She would always buy the biggest turkey at the store and cook it overnight. Never once did it turn out bad.
My cooking triumphs
None yet. Well, nothing that is really worth talking about. LOL
My cooking tragedies
I burnt hard boiled eggs once. :(
I never cooked on an electric stove before and didn't realise that they cook a lot faster than a gas stove. So I left the eggs in the water and turned it on. I forgot about them until I heard this loud popping noise, kinda like you are making popcorn. I ran into the kitchen and there were egg shells everywhere. I even burnt the pan.
