I am certified cook, love it, and cooked professionally right from the railway to my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything and everything! I always like trying new things and learning little tricks of the trade.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a big family and love cooking for them. Right from Christmas dinners to birthday parties or just for family get togethers.
My cooking triumphs
I love it when my kids or friends call me up and say, how do you make this or that. I also get the old S.O.S and try to help save a dish that went wrong. Unfortunately it ends up as something else, but usually ends up tasting great anyways.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to bake bread was when my kids were very young and I was without any knowledge about cooking. I used hot water instead of tepid and ended up killing the yeast. I was heart broken because it smelled so good in the oven and my family couldn't wait until I was ready to serve it. When I took it out of the oven, my husband looked at my tear streaked face and said look kids, mom made bread...isn't that great! After that I read up and learned how to make bread and the next time I made them bread it was great!...live and learn...LOL
