My favorite things to cook
Soups. I love to cook soups. Chicken soup, lentil soup, tomato soup, beef barely, white bean and when I'm feeling ambitious I'll serve my soup with a homemade loaf of whole grain or white bread. I have quite a variety of salads as well. I like a good hearty salad....
My favorite family cooking traditions
So far my mother, my sister and I are pretty well known for our Apple pies.
Our chocolate chip cookies are pretty delicious as well. My mother is an amazing, make-it-from-scratch no recipe type of lady. I always tell her she's ruined dine-out eating for me. If I go out, I try and stay away from anything she would normally make as restaurant food never compares to Ma's cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Not really sure. I do know, however, if it's a soup very seldom mess it up!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh, I'm pretty terrible with finicky pastry, aesthetically pleasing desserts and or cakes. Maybe it's because I don't have the patience for them.
