My favorite things to cook
I don't really like to spend time cooking at all ... but I do like to eat, which lends itself to being a little more interested in cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family cooks traditional midwestern American fare, but has a few unique "secret" recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can successfully put together a meal without ruining something, I'm pretty darn happy with myself!
My cooking tragedies
~ When my brand-new husband didn't tell me his ancient oven didn't measure the temperature correctly: burnt baked potatoes.
~ Pouring noodles into the sink instead of the colander
~ Deciding to HOLD the glass jar I was pouring about 20 oz of frying temperature oil into to dispose of it. Most of the oil flowed over my hand and down the sink.
~ Leaving sugar out of a family recipe cheese spread that REALLY needed sugar.
