My favorite family cooking traditions
One of my first memories is standing on a chair next to my mom, helping her cook. We have many cooking traditions, mostly thanks to my mom's Italian heritage. Most of our traditions are centered around holidays, and my favorites are making Easter "Pizza" and Christmas Pepper Cookies. Now my little girl cooks and bakes next to me and I look forward to making meals with her for many years to come.
My cooking triumphs
It's always a triumph when you make a great meal that is thoroughly enjoyable!
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were first dating, I wanted to make him his favorite cake for his birthday. It was my first time making Boston Creme Pie (he cheated, if you ask me) and it turned out horrible! I'm still not sure why, although I think I may have written the recipe down wrong. Luckily, he didn't judge my baking abilities on that one dessert.
