I only go into the kitchen when I have to. Unlike my husband who says cooking makes him feel relaxed, I am a nervous wreck in the kitchen . . . but I intend to get over this.
My favorite things to cook
I mostly like baking cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The tradition is to keep me out of the kitchen until it is time to clean.
My cooking triumphs
I have had a few. I make a mean Hummas but I never measure. One year I had 23 tomato plants producing quite well so I learned to make spaghetti sauce from scratch, Yum!! And I tried a potato salad recipe from All Recipes, changing up the ingredients a bit and was told my potato salad was "World Class".
My cooking tragedies
Lemon Meringue Pie - My first failure was as a teen. I added eggs to hot ingredients and it fried. I tried again as an adult but could not get the pie to set.
