About this Cook
What can I say that defines me from another person? I am a straight forward person who likes adventure and trying new things. If it's recipes or travel, I'm always up for a challenge.
My favorite things to cook
I am a pro at baking, I absolutely love creating deserts and treats for everyone. When cooking our meals, I tend to lean towards chicken dishes and pastas. My family eats up whatever I serve gladly. I'm never short on requests for dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas my kids help make cookies (they eat almost as many as their dad) and Easter, the girls enjoy making the pies. This year my 15 her old started helping a lot more preparing dinner. I'm looking forward to teacher her all I can.
My cooking triumphs
Tackling fudge. It's one thing that never appealed to me so I only tried once and failed. Tried again and turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
I confess, I can't make a good steak. Bit then again I don't care too. We don't eat very much red meat here
