Although I didn't join this site until 2012, I've been using it for over 5 years for recipe suggestions and cooking tips. :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother never ate out - everything she ate was homemade and delicious. My mother was the opposite and I'm somewhere in between. :-)
My cooking triumphs
Beef Bourguignon - made it for Christmas in 2010 after my husband bought me the video Julie & Julia.
My cooking tragedies
Tofu stuffed poblano peppers......those were in the vegan days. I don't think my husband has forgiven me yet. :-)
