When I was younger, my mother rarely cooked. (She claims it's because we wouldn't eat what she fixed.) So, out of necessity, I had to learn to cook! However, I never complained because I found it to be a relaxing and enjoyable activity.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I'll try it all! However, recipes need to include easy to find ingredients. I don't have time to look for specialty foods stores.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother always made Hot German Potato salad at Christmas. My stepmother's chocolate pecan pie and my dad's yeast rolls are a huge part of any holiday get together. They are the best!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Until recently, I could not master pie crust.
