I learned to cook like many other people, just by hanging out in the kitchen with my mom. I have a 17 year old son that likes to hang out in the kitchen now! I love it when he watches and asks questions about why I'm adding this or that. Hopefully my 4 year old son will do the same thing in a year or so!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook anything that I know my family loves, but I also love to try new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is Christmas breakfast. My Grandfather used to cook for 20 or so people on Christmas morning. He made about 5 different kinds of meat, plus pancakes, corned beef hash, eggs, anything you can name. Now my mom is in charge of breakfast and it is just as good. Someday it will be passed on to me and then to one of my children.
My cooking triumphs
I feel I triuph every time my husband says "we should have this every week!".
My cooking tragedies
OOPS! I am usually good at throwing things together out of the freezer and the cupboard. Just not with salmon I guess. I didn't get to hear "we should have this every week" on that one. DISASTER!!!
