I am a young newlywed and am going through the process of experimenting with many different recipes to find dishes both my husband and I can enjoy! Food-wise I come from a very gourmet background and I learned a lot from my dad by watching him cook growing up. My husband on the other hand is used to very basic comfort foods, ie: hamburger gravy, steak, potatoes. :-D So it's definitely a challenge to combine the two, although I am finding some great recipes here that have satisfied both of us!
My favorite things to cook
We cook a lot of chicken and pasta. I am always looking for ways to give some flare to chicken breasts or make a scrumptious new italian dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have yet to make any cooking traditions of our own. But I'm sure we will!
My cooking triumphs
I haven't been cooking long enough to say I've had any "triumphs," but I have made some increasingly yummy homemade spaghetti sauces. I also just learned how to use an outdoor grill, and that's been quite satisfying. :)
My cooking tragedies
For my birthday when I was a teen I attempted to make a super-sized chocolate chip cookie. I simply dumped a great deal of batter all over a cookie sheet and stuck it in the oven. *shudders* Of course, it came out burnt around the edges and soupy in the middle. Gross!
