My favorite things to cook
Mostly baked things; cookies and cakes and the like. Anything messy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have none, to my knowlege.
My cooking triumphs
Inviting friends over for grilled hamburgers on prom night(yes, we're simple folk). The real triumph being that no-one got anything on their dresses or shirts.
My cooking tragedies
My most recent being that, since we have little cabinet space in our kitchen, we keep our frying pan in the oven. Well... 'preheating' turned into "what's burning?", followed by a smoke alarm and all-around havoc.. All in all, I ended up baking the plastic handle off our pan and into our oven.
