I have a full time job and 2 kids, one in college, he is still at home and a high school senior who will go away to college next fall. I am married to a guy who also loves to cook and is good at it as well. We love to travel, mostly short weekend trips. Chicago was a real favorite for us.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have my family over almost every weekend and have a list of their favorites that we alternate. My goal is to get the picky ones to try something new. I think it is working.
My cooking triumphs
Crab cakes and italian beef sandwiches, both of which we had in Chicago. I just had to make them myself. I know mine were better than the ones we had there.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think anything. Normally anything can be fixed to become a decent meal.
