My mother started teaching me to cook at 5. My grandmother then taught me more advanced cooking. When I was about 12 years old my mother got frustrated with my brother and father and decided to stop cooking. I had to cook more or be hungry. I just couldn't stand "microwave meals". I absolutely love trying new recipes and adding my own twist to them.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything with onions! I enjoy finding new ways to cook vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fridays are our "fun food" nights. We usually do finger foods or our treats/not so healthy meals on Fridays and then watch a movie together.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked for a group of 40 to rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked a turkey upside down (major mistake, yet not the first time I had cooked a turkey) and it took about 3 hrs longer than it should have and had a very odd texture.
