I have four grown children - I am running out of people to experiment on!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking new things and making things that other people enjoy. I love trying to make ethnic foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are both from Scotland - so we have made a lot of scottish food - but my family likes to try different dishes so we have family dinners with different ethnic themes and everyone brings a dish or two.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out well!!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started to cook :
Forgetting to take the wax paper out of the middle of a chocolate cake, didn't realize it until someone went to cut it.
Losing part of a spatula in spaghetti sauce - my guest got it in theirs!
And the usual - pies that don't set, and not realizing that you have to find and take the gizzards out of the turkey before you cook it.
