I have always considered myself to be a decent cook. It wasn't until I discovered allrecipes that I really began cooking at a level that I get complimented frequently. I always refer them to the website. With out this website, I would have remained just a decent cook.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy discovering new things to cook with what I have in house. I enjoy low carb, "Good Ole" American (comfort food), Mexican, Italian, Sothern foods, Appetizers, Polish, Asian, and Baking, & more; I can't think of any of them right now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving. Mom would make a traditional turkey dinner from scratch. Stuffing, cranberries yams, all homemade. My mom basted her Turkey with white wine and real butter. She would not buy any other brand of turkey than a Butterball.
As I got older, She would make a traditional Polish meal, which consisted of stuffed cabbage, pierdogi's, rice pudding, and finally a treat called "bowties". Everything for ths polish dinner is here on the website. Yummy!
My cooking triumphs
I learned to make the polish dinner like Mom made, by finding the recipes here on "allrecipes". My children were quite happy when they came to visit recently, from out of state!
My cooking tragedies
Too may to mention... Burnt foods, improperly seasoned, to greasy, overcooked, and so on.
