My favorite things to cook
Soups and sometimes slow cooker meals. Also breads, ordinary yeast breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Soups of any description. Potatoes, any way, any time.
My cooking triumphs
Steamed vegetables with fresh herbs seem to turn out well, and veggie stir fry's. And of course: fish and chips.
My cooking tragedies
A huge dinner party, 40 people, to have an American Style Thanksgiving. Two turkeys. The second Turkey never cooked!
