I love to cook and try out new recipes. I have so many sometimes I don't think I'll ever get to try them all, but I'd like to! My husband and I often cook together.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make spaghetti sauce and homemade pizzas. We love Italian at my house. I also love to make something that my husband will like so much, he'll ask for seconds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother never uses a recipe for her chicken and dressing, a family holiday staple. My sister and I have helped every holiday, and we don't need a recipe either, now. Also, green bean casserole is a holiday dish we don't go without.
My cooking triumphs
Last year, my mother-in-law suggested potluck for Christmas, and I tried a new recipe -- Baked Mac and Cheese from this site. It was a big hit, especially with my husband and brother-in-law.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a recipe once of 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup fruit cocktail in the juice -- it didn't work. Also, one time I steamed broccoli too long, and it practically turned into a soup. I was not happy, but my husband didn't have a problem with it -- he ate it anyway.
