I stated cooking when I was 10, under the supervision of my parents. Both of my parents like to cook, especially my dad, so I had excellent tutors! For me, cooking is a way to relax and be creative at the same time. It's satisfying to have others enjoy my food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make meat in many variations, stews, stir fry, veggies, sauces, etc. I've stopped eating grains and processed sugar and follow what's called a paleo or primal diet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes a chicken stew with tomatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic that I love but can't seem to exactly duplicate.
My cooking triumphs
One of them: A perfectly brined, moist and delicious Thanksgiving turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Several, but that's part of the cooking game. Try, try again!
