I have a busy work life, and don't have a lot of time to cook or bake. While I can't say it is my favorite pastime, I am a good cook.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, crockpot recipes, grill recipes. My mom used a pressure cooker when I was a kid and I love the flavor it gives food. It is still my go-to appliance when I am in a hurry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's dressing and apple salad for Thanksgiving and Christmas
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever attempted to make gravy, it was so lumpy I threw it away, pan and all!
