I'm a fairly inconsistent cook so I don't really have any dish mastered. That's why I'm all about the quick and easy.
My favorite things to cook
Show me to the barbeque! That's where I'm most comfortable, but I also enjoy cooking anything for breakfast and some desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has an old pasty recipe from her grandmother that we ate a lot growing up, and she still sends me off with a few frozen ones when I go back home to visit. She really needs to get the recipe up on Allrecipes!
My cooking triumphs
Triumph is a strong word, but I once made a killer cheesecake. Also the first time me and my brother finally made edible gravy.
My cooking tragedies
My dad was always in charge of cooking Christmas dinner so when he was away one year, the rest of us tried to re-create his technique. Everything was going okay until the gravy. We're talking a lumpy mess that would have destroyed anything it came in contact with.
