I usually work too long to make the meals. My hubby does most of it. But before we married, I was responsible for myself. I do love to cook, when I'm not too tired. I'm a sucker for ethnic food and comfort foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make breakfast. It's my favourite meal and the family loves it when I go all out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
So many! Two grandmothers were a wealth of good food and recipes to us. Coffee Cloud cake, spudnuts, apple pie, potato salad and biscuits. OOh and homemade pickles. Boy I sure do miss those.
My cooking triumphs
Double chocolate cheesecake in my twenties. Now I can't be bothered, too much work. But the girls love my sauerkraut salad and I did well with the Gazpacho the first time I made it!
My cooking tragedies
Not realizing the heat of a Scotch Bonnet pepper, never mind four of them! or more! I made a meal with them, I got the juice in my eye, and the food was unpalatable. I felt so despondent and blind after that one!
