My favorite things to cook
I've always loved to bake, even as a kid. Mostly it's too time consuming so I don't do it as often as I'd like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
1. My mom making her famous chili cups for birthday dinners and my dad serving us a 'cocktail', which was always a Shirley Temple.
2. Making a German Chocolate cake for my husbands birthday every year. I love watching it evolve year after year... one of these days I'll be surprised by the perfect cake.
My cooking triumphs
When my frosting finally turned out perfect on my husbands birthday cake. The wonderful chicken dish I made up which is stuffed with various fattening items that turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
I invited my grandmother over for a pot roast dinner, it was like eating a brick! I was mortified.
