I have always loved to cook and now that I am married I have a reason to! I've always modified the recipes I made, but have gotten to the point I create my own concoctions for dinner most nights. It is a rare occasion that we eat the same thing twice for dinner.
My favorite things to cook
I would make Italian for dinner every night if I thought my husband would eat it! I love trying different ethnic food, especially Korean and Mexican. I like to bake for other people simply because I will eat the entire dessert that I make on my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Millions of Christmas cookies each year, as well as the all important birthday cakes.
My cooking triumphs
I'm finally reaching my goal of creating my own (edible) dinners without any direction from a recipe. I think this is what makes cooking "creative."
My cooking tragedies
When making my perfected lasagne for a group of friends, the noodles were not completely cooked when I put them into the dish. Although I thought they would finish cooking in the oven, they did not. We ended up ordering pizza and eating it along with my salad and garlic bread. It was embarassing, to say the least.
