I am a late 30's latch key kid product to the cooking world. I only cook as a hobby but everyone loves my cooking and I am always requested to cook at any family function. I am told I should change careers, but I would rather keep it something I love to do rather than something I have to do.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Italian, appetizers, bbq, and some light baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any, I am the only cook in my family.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Enchiladas, Chicken Curry Salad, Black Refried Beans, Potato Salad, Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies, Pesto Chicken, Chili, and many others
My cooking tragedies
Trying to use spaghetti squash as my noodles. Meat Loaf always and pancakes always!! Those are two things I can not ever get right
