I really don't like to cook, but every once in a while I'll get an urge to do something new. I usually do really good the first time I cook something, but it tends to go downhill if I try it again. Coming from a relatively small immediate family, I've been used to cooking for no more than 4. And my family at home now is 3 (guardians of a grandchild), but my husband, who is really tall, eats enough for 3 just himself. So I've had fun trying to cook enough for him.
My favorite things to cook
Hmmm, can't think of anything. Actually I do like cooking tortillas from scratch and yeast rolls (the kind you get to "punch" a couple of times). And I do prefer to cook from scratch, or at least close to it, instead of getting it out of a box. My hubby appreciates that too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The large extended family reunion, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Usually about 50 people show up, bringing a dish of their own, and it's just a lot of good eating and catching up with cousins.
My cooking triumphs
I apparently do well with my yeast rolls, if I make 3 dozen and they are always gone no longer than 24 hours later.
My cooking tragedies
I remember once in college when I had forgotten I was cooking biscuits and they turned out pretty much well-done. Done enough that they truly could have been a wall art of pure carbon!
