Basically taught myself to cook. My mom didn't like it because I put garlic on just about everything! Don't do that much cooking anymore due to a lack of stamina. But I loved it when I did.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Don't really have any cooking traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My sister's wedding. Made the cake and all the food. It turned out pretty good, even though the cake was leaning a little to the side. Everybody loved it and wanted me to do it again at their wedding. I said NO THANKS!
My cooking tragedies
My first cake. I was 13. I didn't let it cool and it fell apart. I stuck it back together with the icing. Everybody said it tasted great!
