I am a foodie. I love to cook, and bake. I have recently started baking wedding cakes and specialty birthday cakes. It is a fun and rewarding hobby that helps pay for itself.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread..and I love to bake cakes...I also love to make those old recipes from when I was a child. Like the veggie soup Great Grandma made, or the melt in your mouth London broil my Gram made. Those things remind me of when I was a child and are very comforting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't think we really have any family traditions when it comes to cooking. We may however, be in the process of developing a few,now that my sister is geographically closer.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent triumph is a six tier wedding cake. Baking bread from scratch, learning herbs and spices well enough to come up with my own creations. Being able to allow my senses to lead me is probably the best triumph I have had yet.
My cooking tragedies
When I was married the first time, me even being in the kitchen was tragic. My poor first husband, the man was lucky he didn't starve. Now, I have come a long way and every so often the first husband get to sample what he sacrifices brought out in me.
