Married to the same wonderful man for 43 years so I have to have more than a few favorites. I used to try everything but MS limits my energy. C'est la vie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgivings are looked forward to by the whole extended family. It's worth it only once a year, right?
My cooking triumphs
Sounds like bragging, I know, but it's almost everything I cook. Recipes are just the springboard. I love certain flavors and like to tweak recipes to make them my own.
My cooking tragedies
When first married I presented my husband with roast chicken which he promptly told me was 'not cooked'. After sampling his mother's "cooked to death" chicken I knew why. Oh well, don't fight it. Get your m-i-l's recipes and make them yours. My m-i-l eventually lived with us for 20 years so it was good strategy on my part. I fell in love with her and she with me. We made a great team.
