I am a teacher by profession. I love being with children and animals (though not necessarily in that order!)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking food that is simple and easy to make. (I simplify recipes to my convinience, if necessary). However, I do not enjoy cooking on an everyday basis - the maid does that. I like to try out new dishes at restaurants, analyse them, and then reproduce them at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cakes and cookies with my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a perfectionist, so everything should be a 'triumph'.
My cooking tragedies
Was doing an exam and my stiffly beaten egg whites 'ran' because I hadn't added the sugar and had let them stand while I got busy doing something else. Had to start all over again.
