I like to cook for people. I get great satisfaction out of watching others enjoy what I have prepared for them. My first job was in a kitchen, and I still have trouble cooking for under 30 people. REALLY! I can't seem to scale things down.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My oldest and I stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning the night before Thanksgiving cooking the meal, and then wake up early to put the turkey on.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner every year is a triumph. Our families eat at noon, and then the neighbors and other friends come in and out all day. I cook for an army, no joke.
My cooking tragedies
Never, ever try to boil an egg in water in the microwave. KABOOM!
Never, ever leave the sweetened condensed milk boiling in the can,trying to make caramel, without watching it closely. KABOOM!
I have just recently came to an understanding with my waffle maker.
