I use to be an Assistant Prep Chef for a University in Ohio. I also use to operate a baking business out of my home called "Sweet Temptations by Linda."
My favorite things to cook
Stir-frys, Chilli, Spagetti, Fish:baked, fried or simmered in a pan, and a variety of Chicken dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother use to prepare fried salmon patties, fried potatos and onions, and baked beans. This is one of my favorite meals that I use to prepare for my family as well. My husband and I are empty nesters now.
My cooking triumphs
I made a delicious Shepards pie once. It was so huge and beautiful, I didn't want to cut into it. The whole family loved it. It was very tasty!
My cooking tragedies
I made what could've been a great beef stew, but it stuck to the bottom of the pot. I put all wonderful ingredients into it...even red wine. Only to have it burn. Bummer!
