My favorite things to cook
I like to make soups and stews. They are so laid back, you just let them simmer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ever have "breakfast for dinner" dinners? Those were the best.
My mom always made whole roast chicken on the weekends. When we got older, she had to start making two!
My Dad has become a grill and BBQ master. They like to cook out just about every weekend in the summer now. He uses wood charcoal and says it makes all the difference.
My cooking triumphs
I dated a guy once whose mom had this supposed "secret" recipe for ranch dip and made a really big deal about it. I surprised his family by figuring it out and making it one day.
My cooking tragedies
Once again tried to wing something. Tried to make a beer cheese sauce for pasta and it was absolutely awful.
