My favorite things to cook
I am more experienced as a baker since that has always been a shared hobby with my family. Christmas is a huge baking event at home. In LA, I cook an Italian pasta dish once a week for something simple. I'm always looking for new chicken and fish recipes. I also started making wine and beer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies, pies, and making fudge.
My cooking triumphs
I just follow the recipe. I don't really see them as triumphs.
My cooking tragedies
We'll see how this pinto bean pie turns out. I'll let you know.
