I like to cook when I have some time, usually a few times a week. Like most people we're busy, so quick and easy recipes are what I like. I like to try harder recipes for special occasions. The hardest thing for me about cooking is thinking what to cook, so that's where allrecipes comes in real handy for me. This is the only recipe site I have bookmarked!
My favorite things to cook
Everyone loves my chocolate chip cookies, I just use a basic recipe from the back of a bag of chocolate chips. Bannana bread recipe that I got from my sons foods class. Thanksgiving turkey, which I've only made twice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We grill almost year round, Always having steak on new years eve. I will do Thanksgiving when I can, I love leftovers!
My cooking triumphs
I just love watching peoples faces when they're eating something good that I have cooked. Especially a picky kid :)
My cooking tragedies
Thank goodness I haven't had too many. We did break the glass lid right into the corn casserole one time. My husband still wanted to eat it! Usually I might tinker a recipe too much and they don't like what I did.
