I love to cook and am always trying new recipes. I cook home cooked meals daily, bake regularly and love to entertain. I host large parties and Thanksgiving dinners so I am used to cooking for numerous people.
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of dessert. I love to bake and make desserts for my family and friends. I always cook to taste and don't mind getting dirty when making a good meal. I am humble enough to take constructive criticism and suggestions for a better and/or easier dish. I also dabble in ethnic foods and try to mix things up as often as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies at Christmas time for family and friends. Cooking Thanksgiving meals for my family and hosting cookout and parties each year.
