I love to cook in my brand new (used to some) big kitchen. I am attempting to gather up recipes to cook for my family. I am interested in cooking in my new crock pot that we received from our wedding. I also am looking into making my own bread now too! I love to cook and I love to bake. Now that I can enjoy it even more in my kitchen filled with all sorts of instruments
My favorite things to cook
Penne Ala Vodka! I love this recipe. I got this recipe from a restaurant owner and found it again in the Sopranos Cookbook. I love Italian food and enjoy cooking it for others
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess that would be Thanksgiving. I love to get all the sides together mine and ours. Its a lot of fun. I love to make mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. I have made my own pies but I haven't done that in a long time. Maybe that will change this year!
My cooking triumphs
Being able to cook for others and not be paranoid if it doesnt come out well. Trying new dishes is exciting. It helps that my husbands tells me that I am a good cook and helps me teak things since he is a great chef himself. My kids love my cooking too and I have really picky eaters!
My cooking tragedies
Man, I have made so many things that just came out like . Including Chocolate Chip cookies. But I have learned to read directions carefully and just keep attempting the recipes and then tend to come out much better once I get the hang of things!
