I have been cooking since I was tall enough to reach the stove, although my definition of cooking has changed since then. I do not see microwaving food, or putting a prepared meal in the oven as cooking, nor do I see assembly as cooking. (eg: Packaged pasta, a jar of pasta sauce, and frozen meatballs.) I have been told by many that they love my cooking, at times it causes problems because I am always cooking or being begged to make cookies or pumpkin bread.

My cooking triumphs
Making something out of nothing, being able to fix a recipe that seems destroyed, master at liquid eye measuring.
My cooking tragedies
I was given a chocolate drop cookie recipe and I decided to try it. They turned into thin greasy burnt hockey pucks. My brother-in-law decided to insult me by saying I did it wrong, when I told him to show me how it is done, he declined because I never mess up cookie recipes and he knows it.
