As a kid growing up, my mom never really cooked anything unless it came out of a box and boiling water needed to be added :) I was always very interested in anything to do with the kitchen and started packing my dads lunches at 3 or 4 years old. I remember packing raw potato sandwiches, and my dad coming home telling me how wonderful the food was! I began experimenting with meals in high school and have loved cooking ever since. I love trying new recipes and new cooking methods.
My favorite things to cook
Anything revolving around breakfast. I enjoy making carrot cake, chicken noodle soup...any type of comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There were never really any cooking "traditions" in my family when I was growing up. I decided I needed to learn a few good recipes to begin my own traditions so my husband and I can pass them along to our children.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting breakfast! When I was dating my husband, I was embarrassed when he once asked me to fry an egg, sunny side up. Now, making breakfast is one of my favorites.
My cooking tragedies
I once baked a cake for my office and after tasting it at work I realized it tasted very oily. I discovered I forgot to add the eggs! I also once took devilled eggs to a family get together and I sliced them the wrong way. My family could not stop laughing when I told them I couldn't figure out why they were leaning over to the side and wouldnt sit right!
