After travelling around the world in the Navy, I have a love affair with foods from all places. I am still learning and I can't say enough about this site and all the great cooks contributing here.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles and desserts. I love a great 5 can casserole recipe. Its really hard to go wrong. And who doesn't like dessert?!?!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Did not come from a family with a lot of traditions so I am making up my own as I go along.
My cooking triumphs
My first thanksgiving dinner came off on time and without a single hitch. No, really!!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to do an organic vegetarian dish for my housewarmer as I knew some of my friends ate that way, well, all I can say is I am glad I had lots of crackers, dips and great friends who were great sports!!! Practice Practice Practice...
