I'm married with one son, who LOVES to cook. We have a lab, Paige and two cats.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new. Desserts are a fun one because my family loves sweets, and I don't but I love to watch them enjoying them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays of course. We have a big family and everyone has a signature dish that they are requested to bring by the rest of the family, if you even try to make something "new" it's like anarchy. I, on the other hand, will make something new because I like to spice things up a bit. It always goes over well after the initial shock!
My cooking triumphs
Well, I will have to say, it goes along with brining new dishes to the holiday meals! I've brought several new things, so I can't really narrow it down.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making a blackberry cobbler once for my husband to take to work with him. I spent an entire Saturday picking fresh blackberries, then made the cobbler. I had never made one before and things were going really well, or so I thought. It was time to remove the cobbler from the oven, and when I did.....what a suprise!!! It looked like road tar! You couldn't even remove it from the pan, I had to throw the whole thing away, pan and all!
