I love animals of all kinds. Will do almost anything to help them.
My favorite things to cook
It changes with my mood. Some favorites are vegetable soup & chili.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of gravy! Lots of cookies & WHOOPIE PIES! =)
My cooking triumphs
I once made home-made ravioli, which was VERY time-consuming.
My cooking tragedies
I made stir-fry for friends. But the grocery store didn't have the type/brand of frozen veggies that I usually used. So I bought a different brand/mix that had pearl onions in it. I thought "no big deal, an onion is an onion, right?". ~WRONG~ It was MOST disgusting. My friends gave a gallant effort trying to eat it without telling me how awful it was. But then one friend said to another friend (who was struggling to force himself to take another bite)"It helps if you put lots of Soy Sauce on it." We all LOST IT and nearly DIED laughing!
We still talk about that today, though the incident happened 15+ years ago! Yep, it was THAT bad! =)
