My life could be a sit-com. I teach junior high. I have 2 teenage boys, the older son's friends as semi-permanent houseguests, 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, a dwarf hamster, a large rabbit, and a box turtle. My husband works out of the house. Mayhem and hilarity ensue.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that looks appealing. I have been doing a lot of grilling, lately, so I am into marinades.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately, neither of my parents knew how to cook. We ate the things they invented. The descriptions of some of the things they made are not fit to print on a cooking website.
My cooking triumphs
I belong to a gourmet cooking club, and often my dishes are the group's favorite. I don't gloat, but it makes me feel good inside.
My cooking tragedies
I don't have too many, but when I do, my family is very understanding. "No one hits a home run every time", my husband will say, as I call for takeout.
