I'm an American who moved to Russia last year & am trying to adjust my cooking accordingly. Many ingredients I always used in America simply aren't available here but Russia has many ingredients I have never seen before, too. So I'm expanding my cooking range, hopefully.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know if I have any favorites. Anything that makes the people I cook for happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cleaning as you cook. My mom taught me that & I've found it an extremely handy habit.
My cooking triumphs
I have made some killer Thanksgiving dinners over the years.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at cakes & pastries. I'm semi-infamous for some pathetic birthday cakes but that doesn't stop me from keeping trying!
