I guess you can say that I've been cooking since about the age of 10. It wasn't until about 2002 that I decided that I wanted to become a chef and baker. I have since then taken cake decorating classes but have not had the time or cash for the culinary classes. I've collected tons of recipes and placed them in binders and the such. I love to read and I'm also a writer. I'm also into photography, drawing, painting, music and crafts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and muffins. I've given breads a try but ugh, I've not come close to mastering that yet. I'm also a fan of salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home made pizza! Kids love making home made pizza's.
My cooking triumphs
I'm learning to use the slow cooker (crock pot) and I love it! I've only owned one for about 2 years now but I've worked tons with it since I went without a stove and oven for a while.
My cooking tragedies
I have a major issue with turning up the heat too high and burning things. Another issue is multi-tasking and not getting to food on time while the heat is up. Ack, I need to sloooooow down!
