To be honest, I cook out of necessity, not out of the love for it. But I do enjoy finding new recipes as I seem to rotate the same ones over and over. I really enjoy this website for finding new things and I also appreciate reading the reviews. They help a lot!
My favorite things to cook
I like making things in a slow-cooker and I enjoy making appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just this year I started making roll-out sugar cookies with our 2-1/2 year old granddaughter and I hope that will continue as a tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out and that everyone likes is a triumph for me!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was young and a novice cook, I was asked to bring a salad to the family Thanksgiving dinner. I found a cranberry salad recipe. It sounded so good. But when everyone tried it, they kind of laughed and wouldn't eat it. Well,the recipe didn't say that you had to "cook" the cranberries before adding them to the salad! That story is still told thirty years later and we still laugh about it!
