I'm a dental assistant of 18+ years now. I love to play pc and console games and have a lot of fun in Second Life. If you like to socialize, look me up (www.secondlife.com), my name is DeeV8.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake yummy deserts...even though I don't need them. They are comforting for me and I must do fairly well because my coworkers always compliment me. Allrecipes has just made it that much easier for me and I rely a lot on the reviews so I don't make mistakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I eat when I'm hungry, no specific time, I listen to my body. I like to use as many organic and natural ingredients as I can, but I wouldn't say I'm a fanatic about it. I try not to eat out often and cook at home as much as possible. Costco is my friend!
My cooking triumphs
One year I made the most perfect turkey with two different kinds of stuffing (family preferences)plus all the fixings and desert and it all turned out perfect and was perfectly timed! This was the first time I cooked for the whole family and I was only 20 something at the time! I was very proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
I seem to burn myself all the time....hate that. I can't say I've totally screwed anything up since I was 6 years old. The first few attempts at making no-bake cookies, I boiled the oatmeal, well actually all the ingredients, instead of making the sauce then adding to the rest. A simple fix was to put the steps and ingredients listed on one half of the card, keeping them separated so I remembered. heh
