I am in my mid-20's. My Mother enjoys cooking and Baking, I however do not. My Mother did teach my sister and me how to cook and we are good cooks, but I just don't like to cook or bake.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I do not really have any traditions from my childhood, but I am trying to work with my husband in establishing family cooking traditions, and special meals for certain holidays...especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. So far for Valentine's Day, we have made fondue for dinner and dessert. And for our wedding anniversaries, I have baked a different kind of cake each year.
My cooking triumphs
Our second Thanksgiving as a married couple, I made a full Thanksgiving dinner for the two of us. Growing up, my family did not celebrate Thanksgiving so it was never anything I cared to attempt. We had a pecan encrusted turkey with most of the sides. My husband insisted on helping with something, so I let him make the horseradish mashed potatoes...he should have stayed in the other room and watched football like I told him to.
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was a teenager, I forgot to put the eggs into the cake I was baking.
