I work full time outside the home but still find plenty of time to pursue my other interests. I love to fish and to fly fish and do so at every opportunity.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Asian foods of all kinds and have an Asian friend / co-worker that makes suggestions to me as to what to cook and how to do it.
I actually love to cook ethnic dishes and have attended several cooking classes instructed by ethnic groups and organizations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking traditions are "you better perfect Mom's recipe". I always hear
that "it's close to Mom's but I need more practice".
My cooking triumphs
I have no real cooking triumphs other than my family and friends ask me to prepare certain dishes and always come back for more or fight over who gets to take any leftovers (oh excuse me! - planned lunches)
As I love to cook, I instilled the same interests in my son. He was cooking at an early age and had PERFECTED Cheesecakes by the time he was 15. His employeer wanted to adopt him and send him to culinary school. As much as I was tempted I decided to keep him. He is now a chef and has accomplished many successes.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make cheesecake and it turned out looking like an earthquake had gone through it and a volcano had erupted. Not much to look at but it was quite tasty. They say most household accidents occur in the kitchen - and families end up eating them
