I love cooking for my family. Now that we have chickens and bring in about 10 eggs daily, I try to make the most of them. I am becoming the Quiche Queen, trying all kinds of combos of cheeses, vegetables, and meats. I'm also a bargain shopper and search the discount sections of the markets. Cheese and meat ends from the deli (usually $1.99/lb) keep my macaroni and cheese having a different twist every time I make it. I learned to love cooking from my mom and grandma and am happy to see my married daughter following some of my cooking habits.
My favorite things to cook
I like trying to replicate things we've had in restaurants, comfort foods like casseroles, stews and soups. Guess I really don't have a favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Guess that would be using mom's stuffing recipe on Thanksgiving and making her spritz cookies every Christmas. We also make the Easter bunny cake which I think I first made in 5th grade.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Dinner for 24 with all the fixings.
My cooking tragedies
A high School friend and I made brownies and to speed up the cooling process we stuck the hot pyrex dish in the snow. BIG MISTAKE.
