I'm a wife,mother of two teenagers and a college student. I started using allrecipes since I was sick of using the same boring recipes everyday. I've enjoyed trying the hall of fame recipes and using the reviews to find out how to really cook a recipe.My kids have definitely approved of this change in my cooking habits.
My favorite things to cook
Bread baking including bread machine,quick breads and yeast breads.I'm also trying to find ultimate recipes of my family's favorites such as meatloaf,pizza,lasagna,etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have special birthday dinners where the birthday person plans the meal and is cooked whatever they want.(some interesting combos) Also,we also cook pumpkin bread and three kinds of fudge for the Christmas season.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook Liver and onions for my husband. I hate liver but it's his favorite and I was thrilled to final figure out how to cook it.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to cook a soda bread recipe and put it in a too small pan. The dough leaked out onto the bottom of the oven and caught fire. I almost had to call the fire dept.
