I have been married 20+ years and have one child. I began cooking for a father and 4 brothers at age 11 and after serving Hamburger Helper to them for over a year I began to get better!
My favorite things to cook
Anything you can fry or bake. I love to fry Chicken and bake cookies, cakes, pies and cornbread. I figure if you can eat it, you can fry it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional... Ham on Christmas and Easter, Beans on New Years and Turkey on Thanksgiving. Boring but filling.
My cooking triumphs
I have my own start from scratch Stir fry dish and a Chicken with Sauerkraut dish that my husband just loves. My son says that I make the best mashed potatoes in the world. And I do : )
My cooking tragedies
Bread that was 1/4" high and weighed about 7 lbs. Also, I have thrown away 2 saucepans attempting to make Rice Krispie Treats.
