My first interest or hobby is really yoga, which wasn't listed.
My favorite things to cook
I love making different things, like pho soup,won tons,shrimp with lobster sauce, and anything asian. I especially enjoy making things that are fairly simple.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom made a wonderful Beef Wellington at Christmas and I'm really scared to attempt that. She also made something she called "cabin spaghetti", lots of bacon, onion, canned diced tomoatoes over pasta. Delicious
My cooking triumphs
I have no real triumphs, haven't attained my mother's level and never will. She baked and made candy from scrath which I do neither. Her red velvet cake with butter cream frosting was the best ever!
My cooking tragedies
Still haven't mastered a great lasagne, but keep trying.
