I am going to be getting married soon and my soon to be husband is always happy to try new recipes I make. He is my sue chef in the kitchen, he likes to help me with dinner but runs away when it is time to wash the dishes. I love trying new and different recipes, my favorite thing to do at my house is cook in my kitchen while my cocker spaniel Kami is by my side waiting for crumbs to drop on the floor.
My favorite things to cook
My absolute favorite thing to do is bake, I love making cakes! I like being creative with cakes, the only down side is how long they take to make. I just started getting back into cooking and I’ve been very happy with the results...I recently made some amazing chili, this will definitely become a favorite!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was always a stay-at-home mom and she made great food. It’s because of her that I have a love for cooking, she taught me all the basics. My mom and I love to cook together whenever we get the chance. Someday when I have a family of my own, I hope I can start my own traditions and maybe someday my kids can say that some of the best times they spent with their mom were in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
A biggest triumph for me is getting an idea for a cake and then actually carrying out the idea to the end. The best reward when baking cakes and putting all that hard work into them is seeing people’s faces when they see the cake for the first time. When it comes to cooking, my recent achievement would have to be my soups like my Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup, yum!
My cooking tragedies
I have had a lot of tragedies in the kitchen...sometimes when I cook or bake things they just don’t turn out the way I envisioned them...but I guess that’s part of practicing. One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to cooking is when the finished product just does not look as good as you wanted it to turn out...I believe visual presentation means a lot when serving food.
