I live in a city that is very culturally diverse, so it is great to go to markets and buy ingredients for foods that I want to make and I love to go to restaurants to try different foods too.
I love to cook for others and see the look on their face when they enjoy the food I have made and I love to laugh at them when they say they are too full because they ate too much because it was so good. That is when I feel appreciated.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know if I really have a favorite, I just love to cook. But I must admit I do enjoy cooking up a big batch of hot wings, and I don't deep fry them and they still come out crispy and yummy and drenched in hot sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess my traditional food would be my Macaroni and Cheese it is fun to make and its so yummy.
My cooking triumphs
Finally learning how to make a stir fry and have the veggies still semi crisp, so that was one of my happy moments.
My cooking tragedies
One Easter when taking a nice glazed ham out of the oven someone bumped me and I lost my grip and the ham went skidding across the kitchen floor, and all I could think of was how great that ham looked and it would have been so delicious, thank goodness there was still a turkey in the oven, whew.
