I love, love, love to cook! I almost love cooking more than eating. I love to make a meal that is absolutely delicious, but is also visually appealing.I am an athlete, so I also run so that I can enjoy the food that I prepare.
My favorite things to cook
I love making entrees and desserts! I love trying new recipes. I'll usually make it according to the recipe the first time I make it, and then the next time I do my own version.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As long as I can remember the kitchen has always been where the action was, and still is, when we're together as a family, or if we're having friends over.
My cooking triumphs
I've won several blue ribbons for my cooking. Several at an ad agency I used to work at for desserts that I made, and then at my current job I took first prize for my White Chili and for my homemade salsa.
My cooking tragedies
A molten chocolate cake recipe that just never set up. Finally I took it out of the oven and we had "liquid" chocolate for dessert. It was still tasty, but it didn't look quite like the photo with the recipe I followed.
