My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially cookies and bread. Soups and chicken dishes are my other favorites. My rule of thumb: easy is good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's holiday cooking! Turkey, pork roast, stuffing, potatoes...I learned it all from her. Baking I learned from my mother and on my own.
My cooking triumphs
I love to bake and cook for others. I usually wind up giving half of everything I make away...one of my favorite things is sharing great new recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I have no real "tragedies" (with the exception of one really BAD birthday cake!), but I always preface my dishes with "it tastes better than it looks!" Aesthetically pleasing food is not one of my strong points...
