I have been in the kitchen helping with food perpetration since the age of 4. My uncle used to sit me on the counter and hand me a bowl and spoon so I could learn to mix ingredients properly. Since then, I have worked in the food industry as a line cook , a pizza and chicken cook, and the main cook in my sister' family restaurant . As the mother of 4 that was in the kitchen all the time with something cooking or baking , i think i am pretty much classified as a pro. I love cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love making easy casseroles for my family. I have found that I can make a casserole out of just about anything. My favorite thing to make is a nice choice cut roast with all the trimmings for my most gracious husband of 33 years. Love baking cakes and cookies for the grand kids also.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Going to my daughters house where she does all the holiday cooking and baking to give me a rest. Of course I am right in the kitchen helping and making my own special dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Winning over my very picky husband with my cooking. Having my grand kids tell me: Grandma, your a good cooker! Lol.
My cooking tragedies
I think I have wayyy to many to mention. But I'll tell you this, if I didn't learn from trial and error, I don't think I would be a good cook today.
