I am a registered nurse, married, CFBC (child free by choice).
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian! I also love using my slow cooker. My husband is a picky eater, though, so it's hard to come up with recipes that both of us will enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma makes the BEST meatballs in the world. She finally showed me how to make them about 2 years ago. They were good but nowhere near hers.
My cooking triumphs
Hosting Thanksgiving and Easter dinners for my large extended family
My cooking tragedies
A coworker had given me a recipe for stuffed peppers that you boil rather than bake. The meat and the peppers all turned gray and they tasted almost as bad as they looked! What's worse, the recipe made about 2 dozen of these nasty looking peppers. My husband has refused to eat stuffed peppers ever since (even though I promptly "round-filed" that recipe!).
