One of my favorite things to do is to make homestyle food but with a twist... I enjoy taking it to an elevated level. I take pride in delivering "champagne taste" on a "beer budget".
My favorite things to cook
I'm ALWAYS trying new things. But I definitely enjoy making everything I possibly can from scratch. I feel like its cheating if you use many box/canned ingredients [provided what produce & fresh foods are available in your area]
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family ALWAYS has big dinners & gatherings during the holidays. We always take turns at a different family member's house. The women usually do most of the cooking while the guys blow around some hot air lol. Some of my fondest memories are watching my grandma, aunts, mother, & many other family members cook together. :) Thats where I discovered my love for cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I find I'm best at making comfort food & baking goodies :)
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few, but I just look at them as lessons learned lol.
