Me and my cat (one of them)
About this Cook
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.

Pioneer Cut Dumplings from the 1800's
These are exactly like the noodles my Mother used to make for her soups it brought me back to my younger years living at home on the farm. Thank you for sharing.
