Cooking is a great passion in my life. It has always interested me but I never had the time or resources to make it a hobby. I have recently moved into a house with a huge kitchen which is giving me all the space I need to tackle any recipe!
Another aspect of cooking that I love is making delicious, healthy food for my family. I am recently married and I love knowing I will be able to create wonderful meals with my husband!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything! I really enjoy trying something I never thought I would be able to cook: a challenging recipe, using a cooking technique that is new, ethnic foods, etc...
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I think of my family and cooking two things come to mind. First, my mother, sister and me making Christmas cookies. We would make so many different kinds. Then we would fill cookie tins to the top and bring them over to our friends. It really helped make Christmas special.
The second thing I think of is something my sister used to do. When she got into her mid teens she started making birthday cakes for everyone in my family on their birthday. She would pick very elaborate cakes and always seemed to pull them off! Now when birthdays come around everyone asks her what kind of cake she is going to make!
