I am a veterinarian by trade, but I really wish I could open my own lounge where I could be the cook and the singing entertainment!! LOL!
My favorite things to cook
Grilling anything, desserts(creme brulee, cheesecake, ice cream), breads, cooking for large groups, stuffed meats, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
paella, spaghetti with homemade sauce and meats, spritz cookies, chocolate chip cookies, churros, olives and cheese, cheese cake,pizza, grilling,
Christmas Eve seafood, papas fritas,
My cooking triumphs
Holiday dinner(turkey, prime rib, stuffed lamb, stuffed tenderloin). One year I made whole lobster and filet mignon with greenbean/shitaki mushroom dish,stuffed portobello mushrooms, salad and apps) for 10 people! Went off without a hitch, all foods done appropriately and on time!
My cooking tragedies
Occassionally drink too much wine and overcook/burn the steaks on the grill.
Made pumpikin cheesecake and didn't account for the extra fluid in the pumpkin. Remade with 1 less creamcheese and 1 less egg and it was perfect!
