Been cooking as a Mom for 40 years. I have found may recipes that work and many that don't. Still learning and love to try new things and ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Anything for a bunch of people. Hate to cook for just 2 people, unless it is a romantic dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
lots of food!! Savory and sweet, although, I am not a good baker.
My cooking triumphs
Not one I can think of!
My cooking tragedies
too many to mention! Especially embarassing was a dinner party where the spicy sausage wasn't thoroughly cooked and I served it medium rare. Scared people off. Well, it was a Halloween themed party, so, it went along with the theme of "True Blood." The dish was called "Graveyard Cadaver Parts with Marinated Tapeworms" so what would you expect?
