I'm in 60's and have been cooking for family & friends since I was 11. Lots of basics learned very young and my fabulous cook of a Mother-in-law taught me TONs more! I love to cook for friends & family, however have some very real physical challenges to being able to. VERY hard passing on the cooking & hosting of large family gatherings, but my girls learned very well.
My favorite things to cook
I cook a lot of comfort foods, but I really enjoy cooking my Mexican dishes best. I've "invented" a few Mexican dishes, as well as a few "American" ones. I've been fortunate to have been exposed to several ethnicities while growing up, which is why I am so versatile in my cooking abilities.
My cooking triumphs
Like I said earlier, I have "invented" a few recipe's, and hope to share them as soon as I find my old notebook. I'm quite proud of my " Chile Cheese Zuchinni" which always garners lots of compliments as well as recipe requests.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name! LOL!
