My favorite family cooking traditions
The pineapple cream gelatin ring every Christmas!
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies? I've made some classic mistakes. As a kid I tried to make vanilla pudding from a chocolate pudding recipe that used unsweetened chocolate , and didn't think to adjust the sugar (waaay too sweet!). And, of course, my sister and I baked our first Thanksgiving turkey with the bag still inside (oops!).
