I am teaching myself to cook and love cooking as I'm artistic....cooking is an art. I also love attention, and what better way than to cook for many and bask in the glow of compliments on your food!
I also enjoy reading, writing, singing, a cocktail or several, travel when time and money allow, learning new things, and playing with my Pomeranian, Jack.
My favorite things to cook
Big portions of anything, so that I can have friends over....what good is it if you can't share it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cream cheese mints, Suet pudding, mince meat pie, chicken noodle and split pea soups. My mom also makes some great fried chicken....Still need to learn that one.
My cooking triumphs
I created a great seasoning mix...maybe nothing super special but it turns some plain steak fries from a 5 to a 12 on the yum scale.
Also pretty proud of my soups and my ability to make mean shots and cocktails.
My cooking tragedies
Trying still to master baking from scratch...I can do most anything but would love to master some more difficult desserts and maybe come up with some dessert recipes of my own.
