My favorite things to cook
Anything my husband will eat haha. Since I make his favorites mostly I tend to make those the best; like hot wings. I like making my own sauces for things. Anything 'parm' will always be my best dish though. My ham is really good too. I love baking, esp around the holidays. Cookies are my thing!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I, since I was very little, have made cookies for our whole family and on Chirstmas Eve after mass we would drive over and hand deliver them to our family across town. I love getting the phone calls at 7pm going "where the heck our our cookies?!" It means they still care.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I make tends to come out right. I hate following a recipe though, so any 'triumph' to me would be if I didnt use a recipe and I liked how it came out. I hate my cooking, as most cooks do.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking tragedies??? Like when you spend 4 hours slow roasting ribs only to have your dog steal them?? No...no tragedies thank goodness...not yet anyway
