I learned to cook like all of the women in my family - watching, learning, trying and failing. Lately the biggest challenge is feeding my super-picky 7-real old.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything on the grill or anything that I can babysit. I don't do well with baking because I can't keep my hands away from the pan and I rarely follow directions to the "T".
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chocolate sheet cake, Swiss Steak, Omelets, Cornbread Dressing, Vegetable Beef Soup i.e. COMFORT FOODS!!
My cooking triumphs
My own Chicken Francese recipe. My friends and family love this recipe and request it often.
My cooking tragedies
Do I have to name just one? Because there have been many.
