I am 40+, happily married with 8 children (all grown), 5 grandchildren and 4 dogs and 4 cats.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts: Cake, pie, cookies, cinnamon rolls, cobblers, etc. I enjoy trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday cooking is always a family tradition. I enjoy cooking the traditional Thanksgiving/Christmas meal complete with Turkey, ham, cornbread stuffing (in the bird of course), cranberry sauce, gravy, mashed potatoes with garlic, grean beans, salads, pumpkin pie, apple pie and more
My cooking triumphs
Catering my brothers wedding where I made several varieties of chicken (chicken breast with portebello mushroom sauce and an orange russian chicken) and more. I also catered my daughters wedding which of course saved a ton of money. We traditionally hold an annual Christmas party with 40+ guests where I provide a complete sit-down meal served on beautiful dishes accompanied by scrumptuous desserts. Always a holiday favorite with plenty of requests.
My cooking tragedies
Once I made a lasagna and forgot to add the cheese....of course, this was many moons ago.
