I am a professional cook (I hate the word chef) but I cook at home too.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with bacon, butter, and/or cream cheese.
I love baking bread and cooking/canning from my garden.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fresh baked bread, pumpkin pie, jams and jellies, BBQ's and smoked venison.
My cooking triumphs
Sometimes...I even amaze myself. LOL
My cooking tragedies
I have cooked in restaurants for 20+ years and I still have a hard time following a recipe. LOL
Just remember: It's not rocket-science. It's just food.
