I'm a single mother and a would-be chef. I love being in the kitchen. Cooking and baking make me happy. I love feeding people!
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything with potatoes, chicken, pasta, cheese, beef... Hmmm... Everything! LOL
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family makes an amazing Filipino fried rice that puts any Chinese place I have ever tried to shame... We make it for my birthday and usually for Christmas too! We try to keep things varied, but since I started my own family, it is more about finding new and interesting traditions to create rather than simply maintain.
My cooking triumphs
I make an incredible spinach dip and have always been the designated grilled cheese maker in the family! I am pretty darn good at making anything I set my mind too. I have a more than decent sense of taste and a knack for making adaptations that make recipes better (in my opinion).
My cooking tragedies
I accidentally added a full tablespoon of salt(rather than sugar) and 1/2 a teaspoon of sugar (rather than salt) to cornbread the very first time I made it... I was 11 though.
