My favorite things to cook
My mom's recipe for chicken pot pie. No one has ever tried it and not liked it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, EVERYTHING was an excuse to get together and have good food. I've learned many of my favorite recipes from the Friday night, Saturday evening, and Sunday afternoon potlucks at our house.
My cooking triumphs
Learning HOW to cook! I moved out at 18 capable of making only grilled cheese and soup. I have advanced by leaps and bounds, and most everyone loves my food, but I wouldn't call myself an expert :)
My cooking tragedies
Surprisingly few and far between. As long as you stick strictly to tried and true recipes in the beginning, there's not too much to mess up :)
