I've been cooking dinner for my family since I was 10 years old. Learning early didn't give me a love for it. Finding things that the whole family will enjoy has always been difficult - differences in tastes, allergies, and my own hurriedness have gotten in my way. I'm trying to experiment a little without killing my husband or me!
My favorite things to cook
I actually don't like to cook very much. I enjoy baking bread - that's a special treat - and enjoy making things that others enjoy, but my successes are too infrequent and my tragedies too wounding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pot roast whenever my daughter comes home and it's cold. Otherwise, we don't really have traditions. I keep trying, though!
My cooking triumphs
I have perfected a pot roast recipe that wins major kudos from family and friends. I also make a great turkey chili that is a staple in our house.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count!
