Actually, I only cook because I have a family to feed...I'd love to have someone cook for us a few times a week! I do love gathering recipes and have lots of cookbooks!
My favorite things to cook
I try to stick to recipes for cooking poultry since my husband prefers it. He grew up on a farm where beef was a daily meal so he's pretty tired of beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at my Aunt and Uncles house. Everyone brings a potluck dish and my Uncle smokes a turkey, yum! Culturally we tend to have a huge variety of main dishes and tons of left overs for the next day as well!
My cooking triumphs
My baking was always a hit when I was single (that was pretty much all I made for pot-lucks!)
My cooking tragedies
First Thanksgiving I made gravy and kept adding and adding corn starch until it looked like a pile of mashed potatoes! UGH! That meant no gravy for our turkey! The following year a friend brought packaged gravy "just in case".
