I started cooking at 7, but when my mother (who was a great cook) got sick and couldn't mske the family meals for the holdidays anymore I took over. Since then my love of cooking has soared. I still do all of the holiday meals, and am often being compared to my mother.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things. My favorites change all the time. Even when I'm cooking the same thing I've made a dozen times before I'll make it a little different just for variety.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast on Christmas morning. There is no more homey feeling than that.
My cooking triumphs
The day my dad said he thought something I made was better than my mom's and he loved my mom's. That is the highest praise.
