I started learning to cook when I was able to use the stove. I didn't really like it at first, but I like to eat. Then I realized it made me happy to create things for people to enjoy. So I stuck with it. Now I cook to relax. I keep learning to get healthier ways of cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment. I love cooking my mother's recipes. I love my old favorites. But my favorite thing is to cook for other people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Before I married my husband, I made him agree that all holidays would be spent at home. The reason was- I love to cook, and holiday meals are my favorite. That was 26 years ago. Now all close friends and family spend holidays at my house. I'm in 7th heaven, and my husband has no complaints.
My cooking triumphs
Every holiday is a triumph.
