I am an RN with too much to do. I love to cook but don't have much time. AllRecipes is a life-saver. I can easily find my saved recipes or go searching to make something new. I am very attached to this site!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook desserts and bake. If it's high calorie, I'll probably be cooking it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I often prepare the Thanksgiving Dinner with help from attendees. We always try to add something traditional for visitors.
Christmas Eve I always make my special lasagna. My family (esp my eldest!) would disown me if I ever fail to fix it! Some people are identified by what they eat... I am identified by what I cook!
My cooking tragedies
I made a new dish, a fish shepherd's pie and it puffed up and overflowed into my oven. I just opened the door and tried to get the worst off - but the fire alarm went off and I didn't know it was directly wired to the firestation. The firemen turned down my offer of dinner!
