I have a 3 year old daughter who takes up most of my time away from work, but luckily she likes to watch me cook- and loves to imitate the whirring sound of my kitchen Aid mixer! She's starting to get into helping out with mixing and such- I can't wait to teach her all about cooking, baking and cake decorating!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and Decorate cakes- I've taken a beginner's class and an intermediate class. I love to cook anything else that sounds like it tastes good! Oh and anything involving potatoes is a favorite of mine! I also love to make candy and filled chocolates- I can thank my mother-in-law for introducing that new habit! My current Favorites are Grandma Johnson's Scones,Baked Potato Soup, Jerky Lover's Jerky, and Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies...MMM MMM!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is Filipino so I love her Adobo Chicken, Lumpia(like a meat-filled eggroll), and sinigung(Who knows how to spell it, but it tastes sooo good!)which is like a soup that you eat with rice. Whenever my family hears that I'm coming to visit, they know I'm coming to cook or bring treats! Every Christmas my family looks forward to my cookie and candy trays :)
My cooking triumphs
Baking cookies and cakes, lemon-rosemary chicken, steak skewers, bruschetta, foccacia, home fries, sliced fried potatoes, Variations of Grandma Johnson's Scones, Chicken Soup, There's too many to list in one sitting! I just hope this list continues to grow!
My cooking tragedies
Doughnuts-Oh they were horrible and what a mess! I know I've made other things that weren't so delicious, but I can't think of anything...I think I've blocked them out...
