My first attempt at cooking was at 6 years old. I exploded an egg, and set a tea towel on fire. My mother knew she better teach me quick, or the house was next!
My favorite things to cook
I'm all about comfort food. I believe any food, when made with a dash of love is comfort food. My favourites are Salmon, and of course my mother's Pot Roast with Sour Cream Gravy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger, each person who's birthday was coming up was allowed to choose their dinner. The rest of the family would often spend all day preparing this grand feast to honour the birthday. It was a very special family treat to be allowed to cook on those days.
My cooking triumphs
The day my mother told me my Baked Salmon was better than any other she had ever tasted. I went in the kitchen and cried.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making Chicken & Rice soup was a complete disaster! The chicken was dry and the rice, though it cooked for over an hour, remained crunchy, not enough liquid, it was awful!!!
