I'm a mother of seven: ages 25, 23, 19, 15, 10, 7, & 4. Granddaughter was born Feb 2010. My husband is a much better cook than I am. I only cook when he can't/won't.
I also have kids that cook and bake better than I do.
I mostly clean up the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I like easy, all-in-one dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We raise much of our own meat: Chickens (eggs, too), Rabbits, Turkeys, Ducks, Pigs, and a steer or two each year.
We would like our own produce, but can't seem to fit gardening into our schedule :( YET.
My cooking triumphs
I used to make spring rolls that were terrific, but that was mostly 'pre-kids' (because of the time involved). I also have my own, adapted recipe for Krumkake.
My best secret for eggs is to put in a little garlic. The family automatically likes them better.
My cooking tragedies
I won't ever try peanut chicken again!
