I love trying new recipes and especially ones from other parts of the country or other countries entirely.
My favorite things to cook
roast beef, leg of lamb, beef stew,stir-fry, cakes, pies, cookies, breads... all of it really.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition was making pancakes with my mother every saturday morning. We tried many different recipes.
My cooking triumphs
As simple as it sounds having a pie crust turn out right for the first time felt like my greatest triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I baked a cake for my Mom's birthday when I was 15, and didn't realize baking powder can lose it's effectiveness through time and it was a very flat cake but Mom was a good sport and ate it anyway.
