I'm a single parent of a 16 year old son. I have 2 grown daughters and a grandson, who is the love of my life. All of my children helped me in the kitchen as soon as they could stand on a chair. My grandson does the same. I have an amazing boyfriend, that incidentally, does not even know how to fry an egg....so I do all of the cooking in our home. I love it more than ever now. I am trying new things almost daily and love to experiment.
My family is full of great cooks, both men & women.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook italian. I love the rich and robust flavors. I am really cooking a lot of new things now as I have much more time with only one child in the home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has always cooked down home comfort foods. Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Roasted Meats & always canned our own vegetables, etc. I will always still cook those "comfort" foods.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Cacciatore - This is one of my specialties. :) I serve it over Angel Hair Pasta. I also make an amazing Chili :)
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name. I think that if you don't have tragedies you can't learn the in's and out's of cooking.
