My favorite things to cook
Mom's applesauce and sweet potatoes, Dad's chicken and broccoli.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's annual Christmas cookie-baking marathon. The whole house smells like an Entenmann's plant.
My cooking triumphs
Alton Brown's Good Eats roast turkey. Delicious and infallible.
My cooking tragedies
The birthday cake incident of '95. Added 1 cup of milk instead of 1/4 cup. Ended up as Lemon Cakesoup.
