My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican and occasionally Oriental, and there is always take-out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The giant turkey on Thanksgiving which had to be put in the oven at 3:30 a.m. in order to be ready for dinner at 2:00 p.m. My mother was exhausted by the end of the day.
My cooking triumphs
Tamale Pie, without a doubt.
My cooking tragedies
When the lasagne in the over heated oven caught on fire and I had to use a fire extinguisher to put it out. Gosh, I guess I had to clean the oven after that.
