I'm a small business owner, and on the side love to cook & bake.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts - slow cooked meats, soups, and anything challenging.
My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking tragedies
When I was 20 or so I tried chinese food from a cookbook..General Tso's and Szechwan Beef - Spent who knows how much, too much, on all the ingredients, cooked all day, and it was horrible.
