My favorite things to cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
Baked Chicken, homemade mashed potatoes, and coleslaw.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving I cooked for 20 people! I made a two separate batches of moist bread stuffing. I put all the poultry seasoning in one batch! Everyone said they loved it. One batch was like eating filler, and the other had to have potatoes to tone it down but a great time was had by all. My cooking made it an especially memorable occasion.
My cooking tragedies
Mom & I were the only ones home. I tried to make an angel food cake from scratch. After it was done cooking it was sponge like and tasted gross. My brother came home and saw the cookbook open on the counter with the angel food cake recipe. He wanted to know where the cake was. Mom told him it was all gone & the best she ever tasted! He hassled me about not saving him a piece. After a couple of more hours of hassling, I told him to look out the back door. There on the ground lay the my angel food cake. The dogs wouldn't even touch it.... Thanks to Mom for trying to make me feel better after such a cooking failure!
