Maybe one day I will have a whole stash of "family recipes" to pass on to my kids and start a tradition. Maybe "my recipes" will be worth something to them as they learn to cook and start families of their own. I can only dream.
For now, my best tried-and-true recipe is for cupcakes. You can find it here at Joy of Baking. It's fairly dummy-proof, seeing as I accidentally put an extra stick of butter in the cupcake batter and they still taste amazing. Nomnomnom.
