In my youth (haha) I was anything but domestic and had no desire to cook much! Now, I am a wife and mama to growing kiddos (17 and 11) and they all love my cooking! Better yet, I now really LOVE cooking and baking. It allows me to be meditative and creative. It's now one of my favorite things.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all different kinds of cooking. I also really enjoy cooking new things and unusual or unique things. I like to cook from scratch for that homemade appeal...cooking from the heart!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We didn't really have any. My mom was not much of a cook and she still really doesn't like it...so why do it? My father did most of the cooking when I was growing up and he is a traditionalist and a real meat and potatoes guy. My main goal or tradition I wish to instill in my kiddos is to have fun with it!
My cooking triumphs
Meh...the fact that I am cooking and loving it...that is a real triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I remember once when I was a kid I baked my dad a from scratch cake for his birthday. It came out flat as a pancake and was hard as a hockey puck. Yeah, it was just as bad as it sounds. They all ate it anyway! That's love! :)
