Putting a lasagna together with my husband:)
My favorite family cooking traditions
when everyone gets together for holiday cooking! I feel like I could (and sometimes am) in the kitchen for 12 hours! So fun!
My cooking triumphs
Wowed a family I just married into by hosting Christmas in our 2 bedroom apartment. The meal was complete with a whole-roasted champagne turkey, green bean casserole, stuffin muffins, cheesy potatoes, chocolate chip cookies & cheesecake.
we also have a monthly family dinner that's pitch-in and they may be just trying to make me feel good, but I seem to always get GREAT reviews for food I bring - Chinese Salad one month, slow-roasted shredded chicken & guacamole for another month...YUM!
My cooking tragedies
Ooo...1000 characters is not enough :) I typically will need to make toast for bruschetta or open-faced tuna sandwiches 2 - 3 times because I ALWAYS lose track of 'broiler time' and things are singed in 2 minutes! Besides that, my husband is now the resident meat checker - I NEVER know when meat is done...I just don't want to get mad cow disease!!! :) It is also widely known and accepted that I CANNOT make a pot of coffee, thus we now own a Keurig :)
