My favorite things to cook
Bread, any roast,... I could get carried away here and list a million things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Shrimp cocktails and Pinacoladas the night the Christmas tree goes up, Painting Christmas cookies using thinned royal icing with my niece, and on Christmas Eve my family gathers together each bringing a soup/stew or chilli for the rest of us to try. It is so much fun tasting everybody's soup. It seems to be all centered around Christmas......
My cooking triumphs
Being told I was a good cook from my mother-in-law.
My cooking tragedies
A long time ago I remember making these zucchini pancakes for a side dish, I was a new bride so my husband tried his best to choke them down but he just couldn't do it... they were the worst things I've ever tasted. To this day I ignore any zucchini pancake recipe I see.
