I started using this site at least 8 years ago if not longer. I refer to to it and the books from all-recipes constantly.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer to bake than cook but that's only been in recent years. It was pretty equal until I found that I love to bake and decorate cakes. A favorite?? Hmm, not sure. I'd have to say the meals that my kids keep asking for. I'm sure most people enjoy cooking the things they know people will like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mexican Breakfast Casserole on Christmas morning. Breakfast spread on the weekends. Mother's Day-homemade cake, awww. Grandma's homemade Almond Roca around Christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
Oh geez, there's so many, where to start?? (Yes, roll your eyes-it was meant to be funny).
My cooking tragedies
I have a vague memory of finely blended spices and nuts coated over chicken breast...Mmm, sand. So I said to my family, "You don't have to eat it, I'll call in a pizza." The vote was unanimous.
