I love to eat, so as a child my mother told me the best way to learn to cook is to help out in the kitchen and get familiar with all things food. That said i have my tried and true favorites but still love to experiment with many new dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Boy oh boy does a foodie really have favorites? Great food makes me sing, good food makes me smile. No matter who the cook is if you are enjoying yourself in the kitchen the finished product is usually an edible memory. by the way dessert is always a welcome way to show some love, and lets never forget the power of cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking a birthday cake for Jesus and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve. I absolutely love celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, while encouraging the children to prepare for Santa.
My cooking triumphs
I love to host shindigs, as an art major in college and one of the few of my friends lucky enough not to have room mates, i was blessed with the honor quite often allowing me to use my artistic side and entertain two of my favorite hobbies.
My cooking tragedies
The first time i made chili in college it was a under cooked disaster, but quite flavorful. My boyfriend told me never to make it again, well now as my husband he begs me to make it. I guess i perfected the chili challenge.
