My favorite family cooking traditions are at Christmas. I now combine the Northern Italian with the Sicilian traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph is that I entered into the County Fair baking competition... Herb bread and won a Blue Ribbon ( 1st place) and also my Peanut butter truffle brownies which also took 1st place
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedy was when I forgot to place a pot under the strainer when I strained the soup I was making. I did manage to save some of the broth however.
