My favorite things to cook
Anything my mom cooked while I was growing up (all German food!) and my dad's Army Mix.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Army Mix, German fried chicken, German Goulash (NOT COOKED WITH HAMBURGER!), German roasts, German Potato Salad, Grandma's Cheesecake, anything Oma cooked, and Great Grandma Thomas's Lemon Meringue Pie. :D
My cooking triumphs
Sugar Cream Pie I (check out the recipe, takes a little work, but well worth the time!), some German recipes of my mom's, and Army Mix (I'll submit the recipe soon). :D
My cooking tragedies
Nothing drastic so far!
