Basically, I am a cook/chef that has worked in B&B's, small country inn's, and various other restaurants. I enjoy all aspects of cooking and learned alot from my mom. She cooked the Woolworth lunch counter for years (and yes, against company guidelines) always put her personal touch on recipes. She carried a booming business and passed that tradition along to me.
My favorite things to cook
Cooking is an art. I love to cook everything, from pies and cakes, to baked meats, cookies, vegetable casseroles....Basically if it can be eat, I like to cook it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Prior to the loss of most of my family, I enjoyed family get togethers. Now, cooking for 2-4, catering small parties, funtions, etc. is something I truly enjoy.
My cooking triumphs
Carving fruits, baked goods, comprising menus and executing them for the discerned palate.
My cooking tragedies
maybe a cake falls from time to time.
