I'm an eclectic, odd, strange, know-it-all of a woman who actually like football and cars as much as she likes cooking and baking. I'm a self taught home chef and love learning new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking, period... Baking and roasting especially.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner is one of my favorites to do each year. I'm the one who's up at 6am starting the prep work so my mother won't dare attempt to cook the meal (cause my love of and ability to cook was not inherited).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to bake bread, cakes, cinnamon rolls, etc etc etc from scratch. Learning how to make everything for Thanksgiving dinner by myself. Cooking the perfect steak.
My cooking tragedies
Learning to bake cake for the 1st time was a terrible experience. Thought I'd do it for my daughter's 1st birthday without testing the recipe 1st and made it a day in advance.
