I remember the days when my mother "forced" me to cook. I was angry at her for it. I am thankful now, and so is my husband!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I could eat bread and cookies until I was blue in the face! Not enough nutritional value, so I had to learn to cook all that "other" stuff too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my best family meals have been in the French style. Long, leisurely four or five course meals, where everyone talks more than they eat!
My cooking triumphs
Every meal is a triumph as far as I am concerned! I could be doing a Mexican feast that takes all day, or one pot chili. It's a triumph that I LIKE to cook!
My cooking tragedies
I attempted a low fat version of a black forest cake that just didn't quite cut it. Yuck is a good word.
