I'm just an amateur cook here to find new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Texan cuisine, drinks (if you consider that cooking)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I typically don't do the cooking in my family. Christmas is always a great cooking time though. My mom and I usually make peppermint white chocolate candy. Other than that, my mom and grandmother do most of the cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I always make really popular stuff at my monthly church potluck and get tons of compliments. I was recently told, "You always make the heartiest things!"
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to cook a romantic dinner for my ex-girlfriend. Not only did I not get done until 4am, but I also made a HUGE mess in the kitchen, and it turned out that most of the things I cooked were things she didn't like!
