I love to cook for friends and family. Trying new dishes always excites me.
My favorite things to cook
Although I try not to cook a lot of the same meals, we have a few meals that are often repeats - chicken tetrazzini, lasagna, taco soup, and chili.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family of women who love to cook. So, there is always PLENTY of food around at holiday gatherings.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest challenge has been frying, but this has almost become a thing of the past :)
My cooking tragedies
1. Muffins that did not rise.
2. Instead of using brewed coffee in chocolate cake recipe that called for coffee, I used the ground beans.
3. Too much salt in countless dishes.
But hey, you live and you learn :)
