I am retired Air Force and have been stationed all over. I have had the opportunity to experience European and Asian cooking. I also cook Southern, Mexican and good ole American dishes, as well as my forte, baking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook "special requests", which includes baked maccroni and cheese, slow cooked baked beans, pineapple upside down cake, German chocolate cake, pumpkin cake and banana pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Learning to cook by watching my Mom do it for years. Once I had a family I figured it out.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering home made pie crust. Making real gravey.
My cooking tragedies
In High school, the teacher changed the name to Home "Wreck" and advised me to do something that did not involve homemaking. Imagine that, I grew up to be a technician and a great cook as well. So nah nah to her!!! =)
