I'm a newly-wed who loves to cook for my husband, family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love the complicated Julia Child recipes that have endured time - NOT aspics, but the classic dishes like Coq au vin and Beef Bourguignon. I am actively learning "week night" recipes though so I can put together a nice arsenal for when I become a mom and I have to get dinner on the table quickly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well its not so much cooking as it is eating, but my favorite tradition is Christmas Eve lunch- we have tunafish sandwiches with potato chips and pickles from the deli. My mom also makes her amazing onion bread for that lunch. My own cooking traditions are my Christmas cheesecakes.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic!
