Started cooking when I was 12, when my Mom started nursing school. I had many failures in the early years, but finally got the hang of it. Now my favorite thing to do is try new Allrecipes recipes for my husband and friends. Allrecipes makes me hit a homerun every time!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mostly home cooking type things. Holidays found all of us in the kitchen!
My cooking triumphs
I spent a week cooking for a youth camp, and overheard many of the teens telling their parents how AWESOME the food had been. That meant more to me than just about any compliment I've received for my cooking.
My cooking tragedies
Made a spaghetti sauce with some spices that moths had gotten into (I hadn't smelled them first, but wondered why it was clumpy) It tasted horrible and I had to throw out the whole batch! We had pasta with a garlic butter sauce made at the last minute!
