I love to cook and share with friends and co-workers what I make. My co-workers are the best guinea pigs because they are always willing to try what I make,and give me honest opinions on what they do & don't like about it! (Thanks, guys!!)
My favorite things to cook
Pico de Gallo...everybody loves it!
Good crowd pleasers, casseroles are always great!
Baking is another aspect of cooking I'm 'working' on...love it, but it doesn't always turn out the way I planned it in my head...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Don't have a family yet, but when I have one, I hope to start many. I always love it when my mom cooks/bakes. She's still the best cook I know!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a carrot cake and people raved at work!! I still get a kick out of the 'vultures' that follow me to the break room whenever I walk in with a new dish.
My cooking tragedies
I made a lemon cake with a 7 minute icing. I guess that kind of icing doesn't do well in Florida. I took the cover off the cake plate to show everyone how yummy it looked...the icing had slid off and was pooled at the bottom of the cake...it resembled snot running down the sides of the cake. It looked nasty, but everyone STILL ate it...and it actually tasted good!!
