I started cooking basic stuff (egg salad, french toast, box cakes) in elementary school, by 13 years old I was cooking dinner for the family. I love entertaining and cook a lot for friends and family.I love experimenting on co-workers. After all these years I still like to take various cooking classes.
My favorite things to cook
-Slow smoked BBQ
-Braised meats like beef bourguignon
-Anything with puff pastry
-Soup and appetizers I have perfected now.
-Still figuring out desserts
-very low skills making bread
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was the queen of processed food. Kraft Dinner, Rice-a-roni, Sidekicks, Shaken Bake, etc.. Her homemade noodles cooked in broth from the left over turkey carcess is the only thing I still make.
