i like to cook quick. don't care for baking too much but I will make bake goods for a good reason.
My favorite things to cook
pasta and grilled dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family usually does a pot luck for big holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'd like to revive a birthday tradition for my great nieces and nephews. My grandmother use to make us a homemade cake of our choosing. We looked forward to that each year.
My cooking triumphs
most of what I cook is a triumph. If I have a good recipe and good instructions I can cook it.
My cooking tragedies
burnt some cookies a few times. Oh yeah, cheese sauces. They don't like me.
