I come from a long line of women that can't cook. I've been using allrecipes.com especially the reviews and the quality of my cooking is going through the roof. Thanks to everyone for their reviews, it helps to understand the recipes better.
My favorite things to cook
Sticky chicken, cinnamon rolls, stuffed pork chops and if I ever get the hang of it...BREAD!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Burying Thanksgiving turkeys, emergency take out, empty fridges.
My cooking triumphs
Getting good enough that people ask me for my recipes! Understanding what I am doing enough to modify it and it come out better than the recipe. Finally feeling confident in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Tripling a recipe for the sauce for mongolian beef, but multiplying the soy sauce times SIX. egads! Unable to be salvaged. Twice trying to make bread and ending up with a gloppy, unrisen, frightening mess.
