I go to sleep thinking about recipes and wake up thinking about them. I spend my days looking at recipe websites and browsing cooking magazines and cookbooks. I watch just about every food show on TV...I'm definatly a foodie! (I never cook without a meat thermometer, why chance it.) One of my greatest accomplishments is my cooking website, https://sites.google.com/site/karenscookingobsession
My favorite things to cook
Gourmet food. I love making things that have a nice looking presentation. My goal is to become better at it so I can become a food photographer one day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I LOVE cooking breakfast on the weekends, and when we have guests, I gorge them with food until the minute they walk out the door. It's one of my greatest pleasures.
My cooking triumphs
The first great "company" dish I ever made was Emeril Lagasse's Lobster stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Bernaise sauce. It was so mouthwatering and professional looking, I was hooked. That was over 15 years ago. Since then, I want to recreate that sense of pride in every meal I make.
My cooking tragedies
I hate it when my sauces separate, or when a dish doesn't turn out as I had envisioned it, but for the most part, I can't remember any real TRAGEDIES.
