I come from a long line of good, southern cooks. That being said, everyone in my family LOVES to cook; and they're pretty good at it as well.
My favorite things to cook
I like making different types of desserts, and baking all kinds of goodies. I don't really have a favorite to cook, but I do enjoy trying new recipes, and coming up with my own creations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Helping out in the kitchen during the holidays, especially with my grandparents. Since being married, and where we move a lot being in the military, I hardly get to see them, so I treasure the times when I do get to help them and learn from them as well.
My cooking triumphs
World's Best Lasagna(Recipe from this site).
My Birthday cake, which was a chocolate cake with coffee buttercream icing in the center and chocolate buttercream icing on the outside(Icing Redipes from this site).
My cooking tragedies
I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies and they turned into paper thin waffers, they basically turned into dust piles when you picked them up. It was a mess.
