Our family has some severe food allergies, therefore we cook almost everything at home. Asian/SE Asian are the recipes that I try that are the most out of my comfort zone.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake but really, any great, healthy meal that my family will eat (they will try anything once) quickly becomes a favorite thing to make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom specialized in comfort foods so I guess that is what I gravitate to when looking to prepare traditional dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Moving away from prepared items in recipes (e.g.Campbells soup) to the use of whole foods. It added time, but I've learned to pre-cook and menu plan in an effort to be prepared each week for our meals.
My cooking tragedies
I'm still looking for a great pesto sauce and biscotti without the use of nuts.
