Our family moved to Florida from New York in the 90's, so I've brought not only many of the recipes my family has passed down, but have learned to cook some great Southern dishes as well. When I found RZ, it opened up a whole new world of cooking -- cuisine from different countries, tried-and-true family hand-me-down recipes, and some interesting and delicious dishes I would never have found on my own. My son, Michael, has grown up eating all kinds of food -- classic comforting dishes, what he calls fancy food and also what he has named weird food that none of his friends eat. Michael is 16 now, and he makes me smile when he occasionally critiques the food, describing how it tastes and why he likes or dislikes a particular ingredient. I tend to do that when I try a dish I've never made before, so I guess he's picked it up. Michael still loves his favorites, though -- a good bowl of mac & cheese, a gooey brownie, and he is overjoyed when I take him out to McDonald's, a rare treat. For junk food, I usually like pizza or chicken wings. There are a LOT of good chicken wing recipes here ---- yumm!
