Mom could make 1 lb of hamburg feed a family of 7. Was never taught to cook but learned from watching her while I was doing my homework. Osmosis I guess.
My favorite things to cook
Sunday dinner - never know who will be there but always enough for everybody. Roast, slow cooker, munchies for sport games, picnic tidbits - all of the above.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unwritten family recipes (that I've since tried to write down - spaetzle is a favorite along with bricciole (spelling is an issue here)
My cooking triumphs
The casserole or soup that came out of the fridge and were awesome but you would never get again because it all depended on what was leftover!
My cooking tragedies
One of my leftover uses to make a stew. Even I couldn't eat it! Now that's sad! What a waste of good food.
