I am 50+, happily married with 8 children (all grown), 7 grandchildren and 4 dogs, 2 cats and a dozen chickens
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 cooked for 3 of my children's weddings which of course saved a ton of money. We have a pizza oven in our back enclosed patio and love getting together for "make your own pizza" nights with friends and family.
My cooking tragedies
Once I made a lasagna and forgot to add the cheese....of course, this was many moons ago.
