I've been married 17 years and have 2 teenagers. I like to cook and read recipe books.
My favorite things to cook
I like recipes that will allow for leftovers. I especially like stews and casseroles that will give me enough for 2 meals during the week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my fondest recollections of my mom's cooking (she was a great cook) are the easy meals she made when there was no time or nothing in the house. Like chipped beef gravy on toast or hamburger gravy on toast. But there's really no traditions to speak of.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few crockpot meals that disentegrated by dinner time. And nice fish steaks have turned into rubber after I've cooked them. I avoid most fish and crockpot recipes.
