My favorite things are activities outside like cycling, skiing and hiking and entertaining/preparing food and drinks for others. Allrecipes provides great ideas and recipes that are well-reviewed, guaranteeing success.
My favorite things to cook
I love grilled vegetables in the summer and roasted vegetables in the winter. I also enjoy making soups and desserts. Now that I have a baby, I also make all of her baby food. It's very easy and tastes much better than the baby food in jars.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandfather always made aebleskivers for us when we were children and I enjoy making them for breakfast on special occasions.
My cooking triumphs
I've had a few very large dinner parties and BBQ's where I or I and my husband have made ALL of the food. On several occasions, we have started preparing food a couple days in advance. All of these parties have been a great success and we get lots of compliments on the food.
My cooking tragedies
I occasionally have so much going on in the kitchen that I will burn things and have to start over. It's a real bummer when I have to then go back to the store to buy more ingredients.
