I love the kitchen, during the mid-late afternoon, because of the lighting, and the fact that it is a country kitchen, which I have decorated that way. It is the hub of entertainment.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food (Roasts, Italian). Soups. Breads. Pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whole holiday spreads - I love company, and entertaining.
My cooking triumphs
Whatever my people like - if I'm mindful, whatever I cook usually turns out good.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot master Indian dishes - the spices and herbs are unforgiving if you mess them up.
