I am a 51 year old grandpa of 1 beautiful girl who is 2 1/2 years old now. I babysit her 3 days a week and we both love to cook. Me in the kitchen and her on a toy stove. She also loves to watch food network and imitate what she sees.
My cooking background comes from having worked in restaurants most of my life. Now that I'm older, it is a wonderful hobby, not just a job.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in the slow cooker. I do some baking, but not that good at it. I love foods with alot of flavor, and I enjoy changing the ingredients to create totally different dishes.
My cooking triumphs
The first time someone asked me to cook for them. A good friend of mine, who I share "leftovers" with, came to me and asked if I could make a dinner for her and family.
My cooking tragedies
You name it, and I have probably screwed it up at some point. I once made an orange and cranberry quickbread, and totally forgot to add the butter to the batter. It was in the oven for about 20 minutes, when I saw the butter on the counter. Uh oh!!! Needelss to say, it was rather dense.
