I'm the middle child of 9 children. I had to learn to cook at an early age. My Father was a school teacher and my mother was a waitress 3 days a week in the evenings. Those evenings my sisters and I were responsible for making dinner. They were easy meals like pasta, hotdogs and grilled cheese, but it was a good intro to cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh Bread, cookies and chicken soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cottage cheese with spaghetti.
My cooking triumphs
Fresh Bread- everyone likes it. I've been making it since I was not even 10 years old.
My cooking tragedies
I've tried several "throw it together" casseroles....the family rarely likes them. lol
