My favorite things to cook
Whenever I hear, "Oh my God, you have GOT to make this again", it always becomes a favorite! My all-time favorites are probably classified as "comfort foods" like lasagne & casseroles, roasts, soups, stews, etc...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having a few of beers potside by the turkey fryer on Thanksgiving day(or Whatever day)! You know, lettin the girls finish up the sides in the kitchen, and just hangin' with the guys in the back-yard while frying the perfect bird. Life is good!

My cooking tragedies
My worst tragedies have been baking. I can bake/cook REGULAR FOOD in the oven just fine. When it comes to breads, cakes, pies, etc. I mess 'em up nearly every time. Don't know what it is, but I do know that I'll never be a pastry chef.
