Not a chef by any means, but gotta get meals on the table for my family. That's why I love this site.
My favorite things to cook
Barbeque, things on the grill, things in the crockpot that are not your typical 'cream of' or don't involve onion soup mix. Anything that will get me compliments from my two boys and husband!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We lived in Greece for a year when I was little, and we still love those Greek dishes and mediterranean flavors.
My cooking triumphs
The pita bread off this site. It's like magic and so delicious!
My cooking tragedies
One of the first things I ever cooked--a birthday cake from a mix for my dad. I accidently put the oven on "broil." Obviously, it turned into a raw, runny cake that was totally black and burned on top. Thankfully, I kept trying my hand at cooking after that.
Another big tragedy--making beef stroganoff with yogurt instead of sour cream. Only thing was, I accidently used vanilla (very sweet) instead of plain. Gross!!
