I love to cook, just wish I had more time. I've learned a lot from my mom & sister...both excellent cooks. My 21-year old son & I have very different schedules, but our favorite times together are when I cook & he enjoys.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make things that are different & new. My friend just visited Thailand & Laos where her daughter lives & so now we have a new challenge. We had authentic sticky rice (balls) recently. She also bought an interesting type of grill which will be fun to play with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner: smoked turkey or deep fried...both very good, company casserole, baked beans (mom's easy recipe), buttery pan rolls, twice baked potatoes...mmmm.
Christmas dinner: Usually prime rib...easy...but expensive...but most of all I think about my grandma's sugar cookie recipe, my mom's filled cookies, etc.
Grilling out in the summer....good family fun.
My cooking triumphs
My apple pie...my brother-in-law likes it best.
My cooking tragedies
Not so good at biscuits...anyone have a good no-fail recipe. Mine turn out like hockey pucks.
