My favorite things to cook
Italian, mexican, anything with Garlic. fresh meat,veggies, and fruits from our "homestead"
My favorite family cooking traditions
on the paternal side, making sure to bring something edible to family gatherings. on the maternal side, sitting back and watching Gramma put out a spread of family favorites. If i'm ever as good at cooking as gramma was, i'll consider myself blessed.
My cooking triumphs
I was able to temper eggs into an alfredo sauce before i conquered jello. just this spring, I was able to make Jello that wasn't grainy on the bottom.
My cooking tragedies
At thanksgiving, we had a buffet style meal, and pretty much told our guests to bring anything they wanted to drink besides koolaid and water. I made the koolaid from a pre-sweetened canister. it apparently was past it's expiration date, and it was the nastiest koolaid ever. My 5year old cousin made a point of telling everyone, "Whatever you do, don't drink the koolaid!" don't know if that counts as cooking, but that's one of the biggest disasters of my life in the kitchen. pre-packaged foods seem to hate me. jello, koolaid, mac and cheeze...
