I enjoy spending time with family and friends around a table filled with good homestyle foods.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favorite. I enjoy cooking and baking pretty much everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition is homemade noodles at every holiday. I made them when I was a child with my Grandmother and I now make them with my daughter. I hope someday to make them with my grandchildren.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say that every thing that I cook or bake that I don't over or under cook or burn is my cooking triumph. No matter how great a person is in the kitchen, they will always have something every once in awhile not turn out the way it should.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I spent our first Thanksgiving as husband and wife, the turkey that I roasted was still raw inside. After I had roasted it all the night before. I thought because it was just a breast I wouldn't need to thaw it before hand. Boy, was I wrong. Other than the bird, everything else turned out great. We still laugh about that first Thanksgiving every year.
