I have 3 boys that love it when mom comes to visit or they come to visit me and I cook some of thier special dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Dutch Apple Pie, Enchilda's (I've been told by my father-in-law, no enchilda's no Christmas for me), BAR-B-QUE Beef, sweet & sour chicken/pork.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas is hands down my favorite time of year for cooking and baking. My oldest son has a food allergey to Poultry, so we usually have a prime rib, that in his opinion takes forever to cook as he's hovering over the oven asking is it done yet??
My cooking triumphs
My enchilda's are favorites of my family and friends, I have a few friends that are single and ask for them on a regular basis.
My cooking tragedies
Pumpkin Cheesecake that was so horrible that even the birds wouldn't touch it!!! YUCK!! I've learned to read the recipes alot more closely to match my family's/friends taste in deserts.
