I love to cook,but sometimes I really spend all day cooking something completely from scratch and other days I go for fast and easy. I enjoy baking, and being a southerner, am really good at frying things, but don't do it too often because of the fat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pies and chicken and dressing at Thanksgiving and making candy and cookies at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Getting the first Thanksgiving turkey I ever made to come out perfectly!
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally leaving my rolls over the oven vent on the stove so that they burned on the bottom. Mixing up pasta in a plastic bowl that I set on an electric burner that was still hot (what a mess that was). Also, accidentally mistaking cinnamon for cumin and putting it in my pot of chili (they were in the same kind of jar).
