My favorite things to cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to bake from my Mother-in-Law. My husband is Swiss so his whole side cooks so different that my Family. My MIL bakes a lot and uses herbs and such to season things...she cooks really healthy. My mom, however, doesn't bake but she's a great cook. She uses tons of garlic and salt, etc. She cooks a lot of international foods.
My cooking triumphs
I'm in my second year of marriage so i'm still building my kitchen (all the seasoning, etc) as well as my recipes, which is why I LOVE this site! My major accomplishment has been making Zopf, a Swiss braided bread. I make it SO much. It's great!
