I love to cook and try new recipes. My mother in law also has me addicted to collecting cookbooks!
My favorite things to cook
I especially love to bake, especially cakes & cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Definitely Christmas cookie baking....a tradition that started with my grandmothers when I was about 8 years old. Ever since I was about 12 years old, I've been known as the baker in the family. My family definitely looks forward to Christmas cookie time! Each year I try to make at least one new cookie recipe to keep things interesting.
My cooking triumphs
I'd have to say my first attempt at Thanksgiving dinner was an absolute success and I was quite proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I tried to make a lowfat recipe for Beef Stroganoff....it was HORRIBLE! My husband and I still giggle about that one, but he is most understanding about being my guinea pig for new recipes.
