My favorite things to cook
I kick total butt at appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Surf and turf on New Year's Eve. Oscar Night smorgasboard. Those began with MY generation. :)
My cooking triumphs
Yearly cooking for my husband's 15 college buddies, who fly in from everywhere on the first week of April for their fantasy baseball draft. I'm the only local "Baseball Wife," so I generally do a spread for the boys. Recent triumph...cooked appetizers for 50 people at a charity dinner in February, 2006, and everyone raved about the food!
My cooking tragedies
Realizing that cooked kiwi-fruit tastes more like tomato than peaches. Oops!
