My favorite things to cook
If I have to pick favorites, I suppose I'd say Mexican food would be my fave to prepare. But, I also love to make desserts, German dishes, Southern food, and just about anything Italian!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making enchiladas is a family activity for us, everyone gets in the kitchen and works it! Also, (of course) the weekend barbecue, and making a big Cajun boiling pot. (There's no better way to get everyone home faster than with a boiling pot night!)
My cooking triumphs
The day I finally felt I had perfected my salsa verde. Also, making the meanest Jambalaya ever, and making the best "it's lowfat, but tastes like pure sin" key lime cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make candy!!! I can bake and make desserts till the cows come home, but I can't make candy to save my life. Don't know what's up with that.
