My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes the people around me happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mac and Cheese casserole (Granny's recipe), Tetrazzini...My fathers all mighty Sticky Chicken (creole chicken gravy dish w/3 different types of roué) served w/a bed of baked rice.
My cooking triumphs
The Pork Shoulder
Teriyaki Sauce (the real stuff, try grating fresh ginger folks)
perfectly minced onions w/o a machine, just a knife
My son will try anything I cook at least once, :)
My cooking tragedies
pancakes (so many flat flaps till I got it rite)
epic failure of the oven mitt whilst retrieving a cast iron from the broiler...hospital visit anyone?
