I LOVE to cook and love to try new recipes and I find allrecipes.com to be a lifesaver in finding a variety of recipes, getting recipe ideas and inspiration. http://thequalitycook.phpbbnow.com is another one of my favorite places to share recipes, life and friendship.
My favorite things to cook
Ethnic foods, new ways to prepare veggies, anything that has chile, spice or that all-inspiring CHEESE has my attention!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Deviled eggs at every family get-together and creamy mashed potatoes at every holiday meal. My Mom's Christmas Pecan Sticky Rolls which always taste better when prepared by her...I've never been a baker.
My cooking triumphs
My blackened tilapia is to die for!
My cooking tragedies
Though there are MANY, once, I put a whole chicken on to boil, intending to take it off the heat and put it into the fridge before leaving the house for the ENTIRE day. I forgot, leaving it on the stove and came home to a house filled of smoke. All that was left of the chicken was a pile of charred bones. I threw out the pot and spent days trying to get the smell out of the house. Thank goodness the house didn't catch fire!
