My favorite things to cook
Manicotti, mexican fiesta
My favorite family cooking traditions
I use the same Christmas menu I grew up with plus a few additions.
Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie. I have added a fresh cranberry salad and pecan pie.
My cooking triumphs
My mom's homemade chicken and noodles. None of us got her recipe before she passed away. After several attempts, I have it! Wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make lumpia ahead of time. Don't do it. The dough wrapper turns in to slime.
