My favorite things to cook
Love to bake - in delusional moments I think having a coffee shop/bakery sounds like a nice idea. Also like main courses that require long, slow cooking times - soups, stews, etc. The end of the year holidays are definitely my time of the year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dad's spoon fudge. Mom's chicken enchiladas and vanilla pudding (the latter being the best comfort food of all time!). Robin's fried chicken. Steve's grilled steaks. Mike and Beck's chalupa pie. Marilyn and Jim's gourmet creations. Donna's aebelskiver. There's some good eating in this family!
My cooking triumphs
Nothing is more pleasing foodwise than seeing others enjoy my cooking. Most of the time it works - and when it doesn't, I just blame it on a poor recipe!
