I work for a property developer on the West Coast. Baking and cooking is very relaxing for me.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies for my husband. I go on a baking spree, and will bake upwards of 60 dozen cookies in a week-end. My husband loves those week-ends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with all the trimming. My mom was a great cook. I learned a lot from her.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make chicken soup from a carcass of a roasted chicken. I cooked the bones and make a great broth and to get the meat off the bones. When done, put the strainer in the sink, and emptied the pot into the strainer -- oops - forgot to put another pot under the strainer. No broth - No soup - Never again!! Now my husband makes all the soups!
