My husband used to love to do all the cooking, he was good at it too. After being married about 7 years he decided to give it up and leave it all up to me. Which I think is a good thing since we seem to eat more salads than when he did the cooking. I use a lot of Rachael Ray recipes, they're quick and easy; and America's Test Kitchen, they test their recipes 20 times to make sure the recipe is consistant every time.
My favorite things to cook
Beer Can Chicken, Lamb Chops, Fish Tacos
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids love helping out whenever we make meatballs and meatloaf.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmother is good for recipes that include a little of this or that. She's not really one for exact measurements, so when I make a recipe of hers and it looks and tastes the same as when she makes it, I get really excited and I make sure I share the measurements I came up with with my sister.
My cooking tragedies
Over cooking spaghetti or burning biscuits.
