I can remember being very young and sitting on a stool in my grandmother's kitchen and watching her cook. Sometimes she would let me help as would my mom. Over the years I've picked up a lot from the women in my family and I've started to branch out on my own as well.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta and family recipes, like my grandmother's chicken stew.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just hanging out in the kitchen with the women in the family whether we are cooking or eating what we just cooked.
My cooking triumphs
I'm slowly learning to make homemade soups like I remember my grandmother making. They are not as good as hers, but it's getting there.
My cooking tragedies
I'm horrible at frying food. I usually end up with grease all over my stove and little burns all over my arms.
