I picked up a Taste of Home cookbook as a gift and realized that cranberries do go with pork and it was time to learn to really cook and not just prepare the foods I had grown up with
My favorite things to cook
I love the versatility of pasta and rice. But, I would skip the whole meal to make a killer dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gosh, I hope to establish some.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecakes that I am asked to make for charity auctions, A chocolate layer cake that my daughter dubbed "the Eiffel Tower Cake," and a stuffed pork loin that brought me a marriage proposal from a confirmed batchelor.
My cooking tragedies
It is not unusual for me to try up to 5 new recipes in one week. Under those circumstances a weekly dud or 2 would be expected, sometimes I have 4. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, though.
