My favorite family cooking traditions
Peanut Brittle for Christmas gifts. Always expected and often accompanied by other Holiday only goodies.
My cooking triumphs
My own creation of a Pumpkin Bread trifle for Thanksgiving dessert. Loved by all including my sometimes picky son.
My cooking tragedies
Not sure what it was called. It was some kind of stew. It was the first time I cooked for my husband (then fiance) 34 years ago. I didn't like it and even the dog refused to eat it.

Chewy Brownie Cookies
I made it with peppermint extract and it is just as delicious made that way.

Mushroom Orzo
Like so many others suggested I cut way back on the butter and used chicken broth instead of wine, but great recipe otherwise. Even the picky eater in my house loved it and went back for seconds. Will use again soon.

Christmas Eve Salad
I let this sit for 22 hours before serving... as others had suggested. I garnished it with halved strawberries. It tasted best on the berries, but not so good alone. Not much taste for the amount of fat and sugar it has. Just a waste of calories. I won't be making it again.
