I love to cook and attempt to get my picky husband to try new things. My favorite past time is reading online menus and choosing which Boston restaurant I'd like to go next!
My favorite things to cook
There is not much I don't like, but I cook a lot of "meat and potato" type meals for my husband.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandparents are from the Ukraine, so I grew up with my Grandmother making homemade Holubtsi, Borscht, and pyrohy all the time. I didn't like it when I was young, but now that I'm older, I'd love to learn to make them just as my Grandmother did. Every Christmas Eve dinner since I was born, we've had borscht with vushka, and a huge fresh platter of pierogies, half potato and cheese and half cabbage with an amazing mushroom gravy. My mother and I try to re-create it every year.
My cooking triumphs
None yet, but I'll update this as soon as I host a major holiday! Yikes!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count, but that's how we learn. :) I'll just keep telling myself that.
