My husband and I are teachers, and so cooking is done in rather a hurry on the weeknights, and for fun on weekends and vacations. We enjoy making and eating the same old thing, once we have a really good way to do it, but we also enjoy trying out new recipes and playing around with the old ones. We especially like trying ethnic foods from just about everywhere.
I also do a fair bit of cooking with my best friend when I see her each summer (she lives halfway across the continent.) We spend a fair amount of the visit cooking and baking, and her oldest girls like to help out as well.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, roasts, breads, cookies, breakfast foods, international dishes...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Slovak food! Haluski is the best food in the world!
My cooking tragedies
Well...there was the avocado ice cream...I liked it, but everyone else thought it truly terrible! Then there's the time the inside of the oven caught on fire...
