Well, I'm a teacher. I could tell you many stories of what I've seen over the years. The best one is the day one of my cooking groups switched the salt and sugar in the chocolate chip cookie recipe. They looked so pretty that I had to try one! Gross! To this day I still don't know how they looked so good when they had made such a terrible mistake!
My favorite things to cook
Anything! I love to try new recipes. Chicken is my favorite meat. I also love trying "Copykat" recipes of famous restaurants and chains.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I get together and still bake Christmas cookies. Mom has been gone for going on 9 years, but we still do one cookie called "Butter Cookies". I also like to bake with my children.
My cooking triumphs
Any time people like whatever I made it's a triumph. I like pleasing people with my food.
My cooking tragedies
When I was learning how to bake years ago, I decided to make Blueberry Muffins. They were basically purple dough. I used an electric mixer instead of gently folding them in. I still laugh about it and often share the story with my students at school. I teach 7th and 8th graders basic baking and cooking.
