I come from a rather large family where everyone was expected to learn how to cook even the boys.
All my children have been taught to cook and love to bake as well.
My favorite things to cook
Almost all types of food as none of my family are picky eaters, even though some have food allergies. My family has learned to cook around food allergies, which can be quite interesting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting in the kitchen together to fix meals together. Christmas baking is a very big event in my family and we try to briong in new recipies each year to try.
Coming up with tasteful and interesting meals from leftovers.
Four can Dinners.
My cooking triumphs
My family says that I make a mean Fall-A-Part Pot Roast. I really try to make a well balanced meal for my family every day.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping my first pot roast on the floor right out of the oven.
Burning my first pot of pinto beans.
