I love to entertain and am more comfortable cooking for an army than just me. (Cooking for myself usually involves something out of a box).
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian, Mexican, or heavy in the carbs. Am starting to experiment in more healthy/vegetarian meals to save money & calories.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Lasagna- one of the few recipes I refuse to give out. Also the monthly tea parties. It's always fun to see how the gals take the theme and run with it!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my vegetarian friend how to cook even though I'm not vegetarian. Also, baking truly homemade, from scratch cakes. Not much more involved than opening a boxed mix, and so worth the effort.
My cooking tragedies
Making homemade spaghetti sauce with my mother. TBSP does NOT equal TSP!!! >_
