My favorite things to cook
You name it, I'll cook it.
Except liver...or lima beans. I draw the line at liver and lima beans.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from the South. We cook and eat far too much. It shows.
My cooking triumphs
My kids weren't crazy about vegetables, and especially hated spinach. But they LOVED my spanakopita. They thought the green stuff on the inside was an exotic vegetable that was called a spanakopita. They continued to believe that until they were adults, when I finally broke it to them that the green stuff inside was actually spinach.
My cooking tragedies
I used to make what my family called "Flintstone Brownies" (because they were as hard as a rock).
