I've been teaching myself to cook for the last 5 years or so - it's fun! I am constantly trying to be on a diet but it's too hard because even though I know you can cook good food in a healthy way it's just no fun. So I guess I will just never be really skinny.
My favorite things to cook
Anything out of Cooks Illustrated - I like how I learn while I cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm trying to get my mom to give up the Christmas cooking but she won't.
My husband likes to run our own version of Iron Chef with secret ingredients he thinks have been hanging around for too long.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I make that qualifies as 'french'. It always involves 3 hours and 40 steps but it's fun when it's done!
My cooking tragedies
Chili Mac from a Rachel Ray magazine. It's the measuring stick for awful in this house.
