I love to cook! I will make up any excuse to feed people! I started catering small and some not so small parties about 8 yrs ago. I hope to maybe one day do it full time.
My favorite things to cook
Stromboli,stuffed shells,fried chicken,halupki,cheesecake,beef stew,all cookies,anything really!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always cooked "meat and potato" meal for my dad, which I do love,but never did she make anything else,except for the occasional spaghetti.I started baking when I was 8, I remember making my own birthday cake,cooking was soon to follow
My cooking triumphs
I catered my parents 50th anniversary party,100 people,roasted turkey and ham,mash taters,stuffing,etc.Minus help w/peeling 50 lbs of potatos.I did it all myself.Since they didn't have a wedding and eloped,it was so wonderful I could make their day so special.My father who was complaining that I was making too much of it,pulled me aside that day to tell me he loves my mother just as much as the day they married and he couldn't thank me enough and cried.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cake for my brother's party and I forgot to add the flour!! I also had a day when I was younger where I wanted to bake these different types of pies and they turned out horrible! My mom still brings it up. Thank goodness my pie making skills improved!
