Living alone makes it difficult to cook so I look for recipes that freeze well. I love to cook, and sometimes I spend a whole morning making several recipes that will serve me the rest of the week. Then I can just select the dish I want and enjoy a quicker meal.
My favorite things to cook
I love homemade soups, and have a half dozen favorites that I rotate. And, I'm always trying to find a new breakfast dish, since that's my favorite meal of the day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We've started some new ones for the holidays, but one old one is to have some Polish sausage both fresh and smoked, with or without saurkraut, at Easter and Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Years ago I used to love to give big dinner parties, and I'm proud to say that I have served gourmet sit down dinners for up to 12 people, with everything from appetizers to desserts, that turned out wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
I once misread a recipe and doubled a major ingredient. It flopped, of course, and had to pitch the whole thing. I have yet to make it the right way, but I know I will because it sounds terrific.
