I have many hobbies to fill up my spare time, but one of my favorites (most the time) is cooking. I like trying new things. Occasionally I'll repeat a recipe I like, but for some reason I can never make it as well the second time.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Asian. And steak... because I was so bad for so long but I finally got the hang of it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating dinner together every night. All 8 of us.
My cooking triumphs
I made an Asian beef tenderloin once that my husband said was the best thing he'd ever eaten. I also attempted to make a chorizo sausage pasta that I'd had a restaurant and my family loved it.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to bake a cake with pudding layers in it. I poured the cake mix in the cake pan and then butterscotch pudding over it. Needless to say it was in the oven for an hour and a half and still looked like something a sick dog would have left on the floor. It was good with vanilla ice cream though.
