My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything... I love baking and I love to cook for people!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad's pancakes were a tradition every Sunday and for a LONG time, they were the ONLY pancakes I would eat! We also have sweet potato casserole that is really good that my family made on special holidays. My mom made a punch for us kids for our birthday parties that is now a "must" at every family holiday dinner...
My cooking triumphs
It's funny but, mine have always been when "there was nothing to eat"... IE nothing in the pantry. I made what is now called "Salsa Chicken" and now my new one... "Cornbread Chicken". Nothing fancy- very easy and very good!
My cooking tragedies
I was making chicken parmesean and I pt the chicken in the oil... but, about 5 min go by before I realize... oils not hot... it's on the wrong burner... so the oil absorbed into the breading and it was not very good at all!!
