I live with my boyfriend and my daughter in our cozy little house that we all love(except my daughter, who is 13 and likes nothing). We have three dogs, a cat and two turtles. Up until recently we also had a pet mouse (the daughter's), and I have since learned the perils of joking around about a pet's demise.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that produce the biggest smiles. So, for the BF, that would be corned beef and cabbage. For DD it would be pierogies. For a dear family friend, it would be my marinara, for I have never received such raves...ever!
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are many. Two favorites I have loved since my earliest memories: on Thanksgiving, orange jello salad; on Christmas, red jello salad. They bring such memories! Sometimes simplicity is the key to happiness.
My cooking triumphs
I am a huge (HUGE) football fan. Let's just say I have the NFL Network and I use it often! Anyways, I went to a Steelers game a couple years back (tailgaiting begins no later than 9:00 a.m.). Oh what a day! But I STILL made dinner that night. Nobody can remember what the heck it was, but we all loved it! (I am still searching my cookbooks for it).
My cooking tragedies
See the above triumph. Same type of day (football), except I got "confused" and instead of checking my watch for the date and smelling the milk, I smelled my watch and looked at the milk!!! Bad milk, bad next day. Lol! I don't go to football games anymore...
