Cook from scratch when at all possible... And it is almost always possible.
My favorite things to cook
I loved food in general. But, Scandinavian, Italian, and American/Southern and BBQ are my best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas goose and rice pudding.
My cooking triumphs
I conquer all.
My cooking tragedies
... raised by a mother who couldn't cook, as evidenced by the firefighters who visited Christmas morning as a Child. I had to learn early to say the least.
