I'm a working gal from South East Texas who really likes to eat, and cook. I also like to have friends over for fun and food. I enjoy wine and learning about wine. I'm starting to blog about my food adventures and just became a restaurant reviewer for Examiner.com.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook comfort foods as well as Eastern and Central Asian food. I LOVE to cook gumbo too. I have also found that I like to bake and to decorate cakes. I didn't think that I would like to cook, when I was younger but I do now. I guess I have changed over the years.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family gumbo ROCKS. That's really my favorite food to cook. It's fast and easy. Living on the Gulf Coast, you gotta learn how to cook gumbo. I want to learn how to make my grandmother's dressing. That stuff is so good you would lick it off the floor if you dropped it.
My cooking triumphs
I think my best triumph so far has been eclairs as well as my first attempt at a fondant covered cake.
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm, can't really think of one. I guess that one reason I like cooking is that even when something doesn't come out, I don't consider it a tragedy as much as a learning experience.
