Just love cooking and food. Nothing better than the smile you get from someone you've cooked for
My favorite things to cook
Mostly experimenting with main dishes.Trying to recreate something from restaurants, or making a good dish "better"
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's pieapple upside down cake, Mom's scalloped potatoes
My cooking triumphs
Although I never make it the same way twice, my daughter loves my meatloaves. Of all the things she could request for her bday dinner, that's always at the top of the list.
My cooking tragedies
Not really good with pastry. Made butter tarts from scratch once and the pastry was so flaky, I couldn't get them out of the pan...so now I just buy the frozen tart shells :(
