I love to cook. Probably because I love to eat. I feel it's really rewarding to be able to cook something that other people enjoy eating.
My favorite things to cook
Fried chicken, Lasagna, Meatloaf, Chicken soup, etc.
Mostly good old fashioned comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving. We've had as many as 25 people over on Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime someone compliments me on something I made.
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to list them all. One I remember from when I first started cooking. I was making breaded pork chops and beat the eggs and added the bread crumbs to the eggs! I couldn't figure out why the crumbs wouldn't stick to the chops. I called my mom and asked for her advice. Needless to say she had a pretty good laugh at that one.
