My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my daughter, my mom and I make sugar cookies using my mom's recipe she has used since I was a child.
For our summer camping trips, I bring my Tin Foil Potatoes (diced russets with pats of butter thrown in with diced red onion, garlic salt, pepper, and rosemary all wrapped in foil) to throw on the grill alongside our tri-tip and in the husk corn on the cob for our first night's dinner. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving '09 - Brined a turkey for the first time ever, and I have to say it was the best tasting turkey I've ever had.
My cooking tragedies
Thanksgiving '98 - In the middle of roasting our turkey, I discovered our oven wasn't working properly, resulting in a half raw/half cooked bird :( yuck
