I am married and have two daughters (16 and 12). The girls are picky eaters and the husband will eat anything I put on the table (bless his heart, he's been very patient through the years while I've learned to cook). I have evolved and now I love to cook and like trying new things or re-inventing all the old recipes so no one gets bored.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and try all sorts of salad recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holiday baking season when the whole family gets involved in choosing new recipes as well as preparing the same tried and true creations we use every year. When the weather starts getting cooler outside - around Oct here - I love making breads and stews.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I fix that everyone at the table loves and asks for again.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried my Mother's recipe for my favorite childhood cake and it turned out really spongy. I remember trying to break it, but it would only bend! Oh, and my first pancake which my husband still laughs about after all these years.
