I'm the youngest of ten children. My mother was a self-proclaimed killer of taste/foods but had 3 or 4 best loved recipes. My dad owned a restaurant and a bakery in his lifetime. I started cooking at age 7. I've had no cooking lessons other than what my parents taught me. I love to experiment with tastes. My husband and I take turns making something "new" for dinner once a week.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I feel like decorating cookies and cakes allows me an artistic outlet. I also love to fire up the grill.. even if it is snowing!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom's Banana Bread.. one recipe I will not be publishing (sorry).
My cooking triumphs
I've had so many I can't count.
My cooking tragedies
again.. I've had so many I can't count.. I'm a firm believer in try-try again!
