Married working mother (son will be 2 in July 2006). Luckilly my husband cooks most week nights because he is usually home first.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies, but try not to because I eat them all! I would love to learn some new ways too cook some fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's Swedish Meatballs, of course!
My cooking triumphs
The best thing I think I have learned is how to pan sear a steak and then have it sit in the oven until it's a perfectly even pink in the middle. Other than that Tilapia Parmesan and Abby's chicken rollatini have been great finds on this site!
My cooking tragedies
I don't remember any major disasters-- I remember trying to make a chocolate cake and not realizing it wasn't fully cooked when I took it out of the oven.. big disgusting mess.
