I love to cook many things. The thing I love is cook with friends. I find that is a wonderful time for sharing and just being ourselves and real, even if the dish doesn't work. That's why at parties, it seems like the kitchen is always filled with people trying to help and be involved........... Those are wonderful memories, even if we "mess up," we laugh.
I do love cooking shows, but when I'm hungry and watching them, I want to get up and start cooking something. They seem to MAKE me hungry.
My favorite things to cook
Well............. hmmm, I do love the taste of fresh pasta made with White Flour. I worked for a pasta company that made fresh pasta out of semolina, but it's a little too 'al dente' for me. I am a former professional cake decorater, so showing off how I can decorate a cake is always good for the ego. I love to eat, so whatever I cook, that's a new recipe, I'm in to!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Didn't have many.............. but I always wanted to explore new dishes even when I was young.
My cooking triumphs
I made a tiramisu that was amazing!! Of course, when I first put the eggs on the heat they scrambled. Luckily it called for 6 eggs, which I still had 6 left and the second time it came out PERFECT. I did get the recipe from AllRecipes. YUM, YUM, YUM.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count along the way :)
