I live on the Space Coast with my 8 year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake-my daughter's school has a bake sale every week, so we get to try all kinds of recipes. I love to make my homemade mashed potatoes, my chicken paprika, and my chili. Lately my cobbler recipes have been in big demand at the workplace - it seems I'm cooking a cobble a week!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Christmas cookie time. I set up two tray tables in the living room, we put on a holiday movie, and I let my daughter cut out the cookies on the tables...then I bake 'em and let them decorate. We keep the crock pots going with appetizers all night long...my brother even got over himself and actually had a good time with it!
My cooking triumphs
The turkey recipe from this site - Turkey, the Michigander way. It NEVER fails. Also, I created a coating for chicken out of crushed parmesean chips with garlic and butter..
My cooking tragedies
I bought some pre-spiced ribs at the local store. As I cooked them I thought they didn't smell right, but hey, maybe it was the seasoning. After I served them, we found out that no, it wasn't the seasoning, they were BAD...Threw out everything and ordered Chinese. Very expensive night.
