I have been cooking for my two children for over twenty years and this fall for the first time I will be home alone (both kids off at college). So I will be cooking for my tastes and what I feel like which should be interesting. My elderly parents live near by and I cook dinners and freeze them to be used later by my folks. I am always looking for good and easy casserole type recipes to try for them.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake for my family and bring things to work to share.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For many years I get together with 10-12 other women in December and make Baklava. We have a great time and everyone loves the results
My cooking triumphs
Simple things, trying a new recipe for my kids and having them say that they want it again
My cooking tragedies
Trying a recipe that looks good on paper but does not turn out anything like I thought it would.
