Moved a lot as a kid and have tried many different cuisines. I love to cook for company, but don't care for the weekly dinner duties. Not as much fun to cook for kids that turn up their noses at anything different. Though my son does love oysters with tabasco.

Osso bucco, bread, lasagna,

My cooking triumphs
Pleasing husbands clients with homecooked meals. Making over 100 rum cakes one Christmas season to sell.
My cooking tragedies
Not cooking the ribs long enough one Father's day and they were tough and chewy. My husband still remembers that.
