I love cooking but I hate measuring things. So I tend to look at a lot of recipes, get the general idea, and then make something inspired by them. The bad thing is that I can't recreate something when it works out well. But it does add for some excitement in the cooking process!
My favorite things to cook
Soups, chicken dishes, salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas, we make braided bread wreaths. For that I definitely measure. They have chopped nuts with cinnamon and sugar rolled in with the dough. It's wonderful to have warm sweet bread with melted margarine on Christmas morning!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Mumsy's Lil Coach Potato has eaten too much paper. It tastes pretty good, but it is hard to swallow.
