I have been cooking since I was about 11 years old. Sometimes i hear my mom saying it was as soon as I could look into a pot/pan without a stool! Lol
I didn't really start expanding my knowledge & experimenting until I got engaged(married in '07). Then just a few years later in 2010. I impressed a neighbor of mine. She was also an owner of a catering company. Who was in the process of starting a reality TV show. In return i got a job offer I couldn't pass up. Not to shabby in my opinion ;) hehe
Now a days. I almost never use measuring spoons. Usually all I have to do is use my nose to "taste test". I love making up my own stuff and/or changing ingredients/amounts of ingredients. my husband absolutely loves my food! I often find him bragging about my cooking and how im too modest.
I like any recipe with lots of prepping. In my opinion, it makes cooking more fun.
Someday in the future I would like to make a cook book, of my recipes with photo's, to give to my daughters.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything. I like trying new things and experimenting.
My cooking triumphs
I got 3rd place in The International Chili Cook Off!!! & Thanksgiving dinners! We all know how hard that meal is to prepare. I am also in the catering business and have had many people come back for thirds telling me they would eat more if they could! It is a bigger compliment then they realize because they are my recipes. :)
My cooking tragedies
::sigh:: Cheddar and broccoli soup....
Baking seems to be my weak spot.... but I'm working on it!!
