I have been working in the food industry since I started working, about 11 years ago, from making sub sandwiches to serving Prime Rib dinners. I am known to make restaurant-style dishes. I love eating something tasteful somewhere, even if it is at my job, and then trying to execute it at home. My boyfriend often complains because I make the perfect amount to fit on a plate, and he CAN eat, so I have forced myself to be able to make enough food so that there are second helpings! I love the feeling when someone can just look at my food and get excited about it! I usually make up the recipe as I go, so it is somewhat hard for me to stop and realize how much of what I am putting in something...it tastes good when it is done, but I do not usually know the amounts of what I use. I will work on that so I can submit recipes here.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook and eat chicken! Black pepper chicken caesar salads are one of my favorite things to cook and eat. It puts taste and health into a delicious, beautiful dish. I also make toasted sandwiches quite often. They are fast and I can take them to work with me. Some co-workers and I went to a theme park and I made sandwiches for everyone. One of the girls I work with has begged me for them ever since. Every once in a while I will make them for her.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ever since I was little my mom has made Pizza Burgers on Halloween. Ever since I have lived on my own, I do the same. It is a fast recipe that I love, and I am sure every child would love the same. My fathers side of the family makes rum-balls every Christmas. His mother also makes stuffed cabbage rolls every time she knows that we will be arriving to her home...she lives 5 states away.
