I have my own small jewelry business called The Gypsy Bead...along with creating art and jewelry I greatly enjoy culinary creations as well!
My favorite things to cook
Pasta...my first attempt at cooking. I've recently really enjoyed making soups and stews. And I love to cook anything that requires lots of herbs and seasonings, especially fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes....
My cooking triumphs
I make incredible potato soup, I think so anyway, and everyone tells me I do. I've made it several times now, each time it tastes different but better. I'm perfecting my chili as well.
My cooking tragedies
Well, I haven't been seriously cooking for that long, but I attempted bread and it came out tasting like a salt lick. Have no idea what I did. Also, I always tend to burn cookies. I always think they need more time then they do. Oh well, still practicing....
