My Mom taught me to cook and she learned from her Mom. I also learned a bit from my Dad's Mom. Mom and I used to cook all the time together when I was growing up and we still do, recently we made home made plum jam together!
My favorite things to cook
French Onion Soup in a sourdough bread bowl, fondue from scratch including meat, cheese, and dessert fondues. I make a mean grilled cheese sandwich and chicken pot pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies during the holidays with my Mom.
My cooking triumphs
Beef bourguignonne from scratch, my first fondue attempt.
My cooking tragedies
You know I have had few but I can't remember specifics!
