I've been cooking since I was 13 and like to make up recipes based upon what I like. I don't measure, I use taste and smell to determine what will work for each dish. Cooking brings our my creative nature and relaxes me. I love entertaining and presenting my food attractively whether it be a dinner party or just a plate for myself. Final presentation is everything !!
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick, easy and makes our home smell like your favorite restaurant.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Themed parties and Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking never tastes the same twice. I use seasonings liberally. No matter the serving size, I use a "dusting" method... I don't measure, I dust the top of the dish with the seasoning of choice, dusting heavier or lighter, depending on the seasoning. My dishes taste different every time and people chuckle when they watch me cook. I like figuring out how to make something I've tasted in the finest of restaurants and making them 10x's better !!! I like being creative and watching people enjoy my cooking.
My cooking tragedies
Baking..... I can't measure and don't like to follow instructions.
