Married, no kids yet-- work as an attorney, relax by gardening, playing judo and BJJ, and reading
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, pasta dishes, salmon, steaks, and big complicated salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom made the best buttermilk-nutmeg donuts! and waffles for Sunday breakfasts... she was very frugal and didn't waste food, and enjoyed learning lots of ethnic foods.
My cooking triumphs
Annual Thanksgiving dinner for 20+ people, cooked all myself... and annual Christmas party for 40+ people, also (mostly) on my own.
My cooking tragedies
Bought a real stewing hen from a local farm and tried to make Coq au Vin-- the red wine turned the bird a very unappetizing grey-purple-y color and we didn't enjoy the meal at all.
