I have always enjoyed cooking from the time I was about 7 and my parents awoke to find me cooking bacon with my arms wrapped in dishtowels to keep the popping grease from burning me.
My favorite things to cook
I especially love cooking Mexican & Italian food as well as baking and grilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner is always a treat and my family loves enchiladas with our own sauce recipe.
My cooking triumphs
Lately it has been homemade chicken fried rice from scratch and crab cakes (I went through about 6 or 7 recipes to get to one we like). I finally can flip an egg without breaking the yolk.
My cooking tragedies
Some meals aren't all I'd hoped but they've all been edible.
