I have been cooking all of my life. For some of that time I worked as a professional baker and cook. I would make cookies, rolls, entrées, soups, and desserts. And I still make those things today.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies. They are my specialty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade chicken soup when I am feeling homesick or it is cold outside.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph is my parents came to my house for Thanksgiving one year. My Dad ranted and raved about the turkey I prepared and insisted that I make the turkey next year. So every Thanksgiving I spend with my parents I have made the turkey.
My cooking tragedies
My Biggest cooking tragedy was I made a 6 layer dark chocolate cake for my Mother-in-law’s birthday. It was a Martha Stewart recipe, so very complicated. I spent two days making that cake but I read the recipe wrong and the cake ended up to be dense and dry. We ended up throwing half of it away.
