My mother and brother are definitely gourmet, I aspire to be as good as them. Recently retired after 30+ years now have some time on my hands and looking forward to exploring more in the culinary field! I will update with my successes and failures (everyone has them, right?)
My favorite things to cook
Indian (as in India), Mexican, vegetarian (the challenge is to make it not bland) are some favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything that sounded good.
My cooking triumphs
I'll get back to this.
My cooking tragedies
How about when I was in college and wanted to do my first turkey. I reported to my aunt that all was well except I couldn't find the giblets any where! She asked if I had looked in the neck....huh? If she hadn't told me about that I would have cooked them in their package nicely tucked in the neck!
