New to the at home thing. Always tried unique recipes, but lost interest for a while. Now, I have the time to really think about what I cook, and want to get back into unique cooking, rather than the planned 'meatloaf nite' thing!
My favorite things to cook
Very little that I won't try. I do leave the grilling scenarios to husband and son!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always have to throw in the 'never tried' dish at the holidays. I try to imitate my mother from a standpoint of making something really special for special occasions and holidays. Best? The homemade liqueur at Christmas. Invite close friends/family to "tweak" the recipe of the moment, then bottle for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I have to say the pickled corn relish made from locally grown veggies. People still ask about that and it's years old.
My cooking tragedies
I'm afraid those are too many to count! But, I have a family that has a wonderful sense of humor, so it's never a tragedy over food. They always recognize the effort and love put into it.
