I love food and I love cooking and feeding too.
I always wanted to be chef but I end it up being an ICU nurse.
I cook and I bake, savory and sweets.
I love cooking so much since I was little girl, I use to take over my mom in the kitchen.
My Mom is an excellent cook and all her sister as well.
I remember my Mom getting invited to cook at weddings and she did it all for free.
Growing up my mom never bought bread , we had a fire wood oven and she baked all the goodies all the time and every thing smelled amazing.
Who did not have bread baked in a fire wood oven seriously have no idea what a good bread taste like.
Now I cook to my family all the time and they love it.
My favorite things to cook

My cooking triumphs
I was 11 years old and was the first time I made stuffed cabbage my mom was not home and I surprised her ,she was so proud of me.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked rice I was about 9 years old and was a disaster .
I put too much water and forget to put salt . every one in my family ate it and said it is so tasty only to keep my spirt up so I keep cooking and the only one did not eat was me.
Now I master cooking all kind of rice and my favorite is Basmati rice.
