I have been attempting to learn to cook for quite some time but in the past few years I've gotten a lot better thanks in part to a certain celeb's half hour cook books :) I'm starting out slow and working my way up to the professional cookbook I also received a few years ago. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to make a recipe of my own completely from scratch but for now I just use others' recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love making comfort food (stews, spaghetti, biscuits and gravy), the kind of food that fills you up and makes you feel warm and cozy inside. I am also really liking trying new things. I recently made miga's for the first time and I gotta say they weren't that bad!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family traditions but I'm working on starting some of my own.
My cooking triumphs
Triumphs is a pretty strong word, I think when whatever I make gets eaten without any leftovers it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count from the early days of attempting to cook. Things were burned, things were undercooked, I was all over the spectrum.
