About me...well I have been cooking since I was a kid. Love to cook and bake. I would call myself an experienced cook/baker. Not professional by any means just been around and experiment a lot and have had a lot of success at it with friends and family. I'm very old school and traditional, but the last couple years I have tried a lot of new things I wouldn't have normally. Love to cook for those I love and people who need a helping hand once in awhile.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Its my most favorite and I am at my happiest. I love to please people and sweet things always please people! I'm getting to be a crock pot pro also. Breads...all kinds of bread I try to bake now. I would say my horizons have been broadened a lot since I started All Recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas morning at Grandmas! Since I was little we always had waffles, bacon, sausage, and OJ for Christmas morning breakfast. Bright and early. I want to keep that tradition alive because it means so much to me. We don't go to my Grandma's anymore but we do it at my parents home. Things have changed a bit since kids have been added to the mix. The timing is different and now my dad does most of the cooking on Christmas since my mom is disabled now. He's a cooker like me too, and eventually he'll let me take over. LOL.
My cooking triumphs
I have quite a few now since I have done experiments with certain things in cooking. I'd say my triumphs would be all the new stuff I am trying now. I'm not so afraid to try new things now.
My cooking tragedies
I used to list Sugar Cookies on here as an utter failure. Now that has changed. Found the perfect recipe that comes out every time when I make them. Perfect! I really don't have "tragedies" but more like "needs to improve" which one of them is timing. This day and age everyone is so busy. I am too sometimes and therefore rush sometimes so thats something I would like to work on.
