I'm a single mother of a 16 year-old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Shrimp and pasta, chicken parmesan, homemade bread, fresh homemade pizza, carne guisada
My favorite family cooking traditions
None, we are a very small non-traditional family. I cook for Christmas and make a different meal every year. I wonder if my daughter will wish she had a memory of a food tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas dinner this year was a wonderful beef filet, homemade bread, spinach salad. Great meal...
My cooking tragedies
I accidentally put cinnamon in a big pot of chili instead of cumin. I had to throw it away. I hated throwing all of that food away. It wasn't palateable.
