I have loved to cook since I was 9 or 10. It is the thing about "just me" I feel the most passionate about. Maybe when my kids are grown and our business is running it's self I can go to culinary school.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new dessert recipes. My favorite from allrecipes.com is the Strawberry Torte. Yummy! I am also pretty darn good at kitchen sink recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pie! I make the best fruit pies; I use the Better Homes and Gardens recipe for crust and it is always perfect. I think what makes my pie good is I never use as much sugar as called for and always use tart fruit
My cooking triumphs
My mom would say lasagne, my brother would say blueberry pancakes, my husband would say anything I make and my kids would say chocolate cake.
My cooking tragedies
There have been more then I can mention here. :(
