a mom of 3 kids ages 11, 8 and 7.... creative & have a big time passion for my hobby of cake decorating. I love cooking dishes as well and have tried many recipes here on allrecipes. by the way, I'm Jessica!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and cooking from scratch...making desserts (any kind), chicken and fish dishes, red meat and seafoods. I also like to experiment with pastas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On holidays and birthday celebrations, it's always Baked Tuna Lasagna, Chicken Pastel, Fruit Cake, Siopao (chinese steamed buns) and Embutido (meatloaf).
My cooking triumphs
When I have perfected baking cakes and making frostings and icings which eventually led to cake decorating. I'm proud to say I learned it all by myself.
My cooking tragedies
I once "microwaved" 5 eggs (to make hard boil) for one minute and they exploded inside the oven... boy, it was one hell of an explosion and it was one hell of a mess. first time ever done that and will never do that again.... luckily the eggs exploded safely inside the microwave.
