Domestication isn't such a bad thing,... it's the creative part I enjoy,... not the cleaning part!
I also like gardening.
My favorite things to cook
Italian Food, some Asian Food, German food, good old American comfort food(s), some Mexican food,.... I am not a picky eater, so I will try a wide array of foods. Needless to say, most of my family are picky eaters, so I am limited on what I can make or eat in the home. It does squelch my creativity and palate,.....which is a real bummer!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is German, and I enjoyed many of the interesting dishes she has prepared over the years. I have Italian heritage in my family as well. I love Italian food, so I enjoy making it as well.
My cooking triumphs
I think I make great party food. I love dips and finger snack foods.
When I entertain or go to parties, they seem to go over real well.
My cooking tragedies
One memory that comes to mind is,......one time when I was a young teen, I made spaghetti and threw in a boatload of green olives in the sauce. My parents were kind to eat it anyway,... but admitted that they preferred it without them. ;o)
