I have been interested in cooking from a very young age. I am a very experienced home cook. Nothing too fancy, but I do like to try & dress things up a little. I have also done a lot of baking. I've catered sweet tables, company parties & X-mas gift baskets for my employer to give customers. Of course I've baked for all of my family too.
My favorite things to cook
My all time favorite food is Italian. I think I have tomatoes running through my veins. I also like Mexican & Asian foods. I love trying new recipes. I like bold flavors. I enjoy a little kick of spice too. I have a real weakness for anything chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making dinners for my entire family. Holidays, birthdays, summer parties. I make things that no one has had before. I'm always looking for new things. My nieces & nephews are all grown up now & I have shared many of my favorite recipes with them.
My cooking triumphs
I had a Mother's Day brunch at my house about one month after I moved into my current house. I had all of my family & all of my inlaws. There was a huge gang here. I found many of my recipes from this site.
I've also hosted many family get togethers. Everyone is always excited to see what I've made.
My cooking tragedies
People don't think I experience cooking flops, but I do. I try not to let anyone see the mistakes.
