I don't count cooking as one of my favorites things, so when I cook something other than quick and simple it has to be for a good reason, like Thanksgiving or a special party.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner with my Grandma and Grampa. It was the best food I'll ever eat, with the dearest people in my life.
My cooking triumphs
That my Thanksgiving dinner can be said to be very like Grandma's. Not as good, but sort of close.
