January's Food Challenge

January's theme is...New Year's traditional food from a culture you want to learn more about.  I chose Germany, because I don't know alot of German traditions and don't often make German food.  It would be interesting to include a brief description of the culture's New Year traditions in the review.  If you would like to participate, just pick a culture that you would like to learn more about, or email me at ARmonthlychallenge@gmail.com to receive a random culture from me.  Once you have done some research, just make the dish/meal and email me the picture & review by the end of January.

About Me
I am a food addict and don't plan on recovering any time soon! I truly enjoy cooking and baking, though I still have much to learn. In addition to kitchen time, reading is one of my favorite hobbies. Also, I am the oldest of seven children, and my husband and I spend a lot of time with both of our families, because our parents and siblings live close. Finally, this is my second year in the Allrecipes Brand Ambassador program. This means that I volunteer to promote Allrecipes, because I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new foods, but I often cook chicken dishes, because they are fairly easy and cheap. I really enjoy baking, but my husband does not like many sweets (much to my chagrin!) So, I often volunteer to bake a dessert whenever we spend time with other people or attend a church activity.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking/baking traditions are those that occur the days before holidays. My mother and I sometimes stay up all night baking together (usually Greek & Jewish recipes handed down from my grandmothers), and it is truly a bonding time.
My cooking triumphs
Most of the recipes from Allrecipes lead to cooking success stories. Thank you to all the members of AR that have contributed recipes and reviews. They have been quite helpful!
My cooking tragedies
When I first began cooking, I had several poor attempts at using the broiler, most of which ended in a fire! I am happy to report that I have finally learned how to use it, after several tries. :)
