Cook pretty much daily, still learning to bake. With 3 kids i keep it pretty easy most days. But, I love fine-dining, and then trying to re-create the dishes at home. Usually find I can cook it better (and healthier, and cheaper!) at home than eat it at an average restaurant. Although, MacDonalds and pizza have their place once in a while. Love having all 3 kids help me in the kitchen. I find they try all kinds of different foods that way. Always have Sunday breakfast and dinner together as a family.
My favorite things to cook
Love a good stir fry and anything freshly grilled.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Husband's Sunday morning pancakes; Creating an Easter basket with food to eat Easter morning; big Polish Christmas Eve dinner; Small but delicious French dessert after dinner, accompanied with good coffee
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner, which never involves turkey, but always gets everyone to come! Finally mastering homemade soup!
My cooking tragedies
So far so good, although I do have some trouble over-cooking fish. Did have some trouble melting chocolate over the stove - long way to go on improving the dessert skills.
