My favorite things to cook
Healthy (and, in my sister's eyes, very weird) concotions. Savory nut and seed trail mixes...stir fry with unorthodox blends of veggies...omlettes with more herbs than eggs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making rice pudding for Christmas. Almost nothing is as nostalgic as a bowl of thick, creamy pudding on a wintery New England evening.
My cooking tragedies
Making Indian pudding...with about 5 times the needed amount of spices. It was so hideously awful, even my chickens turned up their beaks at it!
