I have been cooking and baking since I was a very young child. My grandmother was a caterer, so I had a lot of practice helping her make all sorts of things, like cakes, mini sandwiches, etc.
I am in my late twenties now, and I cook or bake something practically every single day. I have four children, and my two older daughters both enjoy helping me create delicious meals and treats.
My favorite things to cook
My older girls loves to make cookies, so we do that a lot. I personally love to bake bread of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Saturday growing up, I would help my mom make white bread. We would make enough dough to make about four loaves of bread and we would also set some aside to fry scones for lunch. We would put butter and homemade jam or honey on them
My cooking triumphs
I catered my twin brother's wedding, and everyone was raving about the food. I had several calls from guests at the wedding wanting the recipes of the food that I made. It was nice to be carrying on the traditions of my grandmother.
My cooking tragedies
As a teenager I liked to experiment maybe too much. I made a big pot of rice once, and decided it would be a good idea to add soy sauce to it while it was cooking. Well, it wasn't. It burned the rice or something... It completely ruined the whole pot.
