My mom (who was a great cook) got sick with brain cancer when I was young. So I started cooking around 12 years old, and she would tell me what to do (atleast what she could remember). Now I'm a happily married mom of 2 picky girls and my husband is even pickier and will eat no leftovers! I need all the help I can get:@
My favorite things to cook
I really like to bake, especially pies. And even though I'm not a big fan of them, I am good at making soup but then again who isn't. My favorite thing to eat is anything from my childhood like peirogies, kolachy, haluski, and anything with white sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving my oldest daughter makes the Amish White Bread recipe at this site. Her little tradition. And the hubby always likes when I make my pies so that is a must.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally made my haluski potato dumplings the right way! Oh yeah, when my fudge came out right. That was a big one.
My cooking tragedies
So many to mention! Although I've been cooking for a long time, I still make many "Tragedies". Ask my family:) But I love to eat and that is what keeps me going. The biggest tradedy that I kept getting thrown into my face is the bland chuncks of chicken that were hard as rocks that I made for dinner not too long ago. How embarressing.
