My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband, son, daughter-in-law and I love cooking together. At Christmas time, we have the traditional Polish dinner on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day we graze on appetizers all day and just relax.
My cooking tragedies
Many years ago when my son was about 2 years old (he is now 27) it was spring time. I was making the Spring Lamb Stew that my husband absolutely loves. I had a horrible head cold and my baby was also sick. The stew was pretty much done. I was thickening it using cornstarch and water - no matter what I did, it would not thicken. I suddenly realized I was using sugar and water!! Of course it wouldn't thicken!! I guess I was delirous with fever. Needless to say, I had to throw the whole thing out. We still laugh about this.
