I love to cook, and watch food network on tv...but don't expect me to cook much of what I see on tv - I'm far to picky an eater.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake. Rarely do I go all out and bake my own bread - but when I do both my family and I are very happy with the results.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has several cooks - and each of us are expected to do certain items...such as I will almost always be the one to make the mashed potatoes, and my sister (the vegetarian in the family) will always fix the turkey on thanksgiving...nevermind that she doesn't eat and never has eaten the turkey. Go figure.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime you make a success of an incomplete recipe is a triumph. Especially when it involves baking.
My cooking tragedies
I remember one time as a young girl, a friend and I tried to make an angel food cake...and apparently didn't beat the batter long enough - need I really say what the results were?
