I am married 30+ years and enjoy cooking for my family. My daughter is away at school, so I make a lot of double recipes, then freeze in individual portions for her to experience a "taste of home."
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with foreign dishes, and also enjoy the "tried and true" standards like meatloaf, pot roast, chicken pot pie, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Any holiday dinner counts as a "triumph." I always make everyone's favorites and somehow manage to have it all ready at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Despite my successes over the years, it's the simple things that get me: I always burn grilled cheese! (Once it was so bad, I threw the smoking pan, sandwich included, out the front door into the snow. The next morning the sandwich was gone, but I had to throw the pan away because you could still see the image of the bread branded into the Teflon!)
