I cook for two around my house, and there are times when that can be quite a challenge. I LOVE to bake. It's definately my calling. That, I've been doing since I was just a kid. People often think of baking as this super precise, easy-to-mess-up kind of thing, but I think it take less thought than regular cooking! I'm a novice at actual 'cooking', but I'm gradually getting better. I'm hoping that it's somehow genetic because I come from a long line of Master Mom-Chefs. I'm currently a Cake Decorator for Safeway, which is a LOT of fun, but VERY VERY VERY stressful and has lost the pleasure it used to have. I also often dream about how wonderful it would be if I could attend culinary school.. sigh.
My favorite things to cook
I love quick, easy stuff. I enjoy soups/stews, anything that calls for canned ingrediants, rich pasta dishes, chicken, and my newest joy is Indian food. YUM!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Roasting a chicken, making Aloo-Gobi (YUM!), delicious Pecan Tassies (Christmas 2007), and generally successfully making anything on the first attempt.
My cooking tragedies
I'll never tell!
