I'm 34 years old, married for 9 years and couldn't boil water when I met my husband! I have experimented on him and my 2 stepsons over the years and lucky for me, they were willing to try. Now, they all rave about my cooking which makes it all worthwhile! Allrecipes has helped me so much over the years find and experiment. It was the greatest thing to find this site!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's mantra was "stay out of my kitchen" so honestly, I was served tons of food but not really taught! First thing I ever made for my husband was lasagna with my mom's help. I have since put my own twist on it adding spinach to the ricotta.
My cooking triumphs
When I made a wonderful prime rib roast for Christmas one year with lots of gourmet side dishes! The presentation and the food was just perfect. I was so proud and pleased that not only did I put a lot of effort and thought into it but that my family enjoyed it!
My cooking tragedies
I have yet to conquer baking but I'm working on it!
