80% of the time I look at cooking as a chore, but when that other 20% kicks in- watch out!! My mom was an excellent cook, German born and started cooking when she was 12. Everything from scratch, lots of butter and gravy. It's hard to live up to her legacy, but slowly I'm trying!
My favorite things to cook
Very unhealthy desserts and baked goods. I love seeing people's reaction when they bite into a decadent chocolate dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sit down meals on the big holidays with mom's china. Mom cooking our favorite meal for our birthdays, I always asked for Beef Wellington.
My cooking triumphs
I mastered my mom's beef stew! I was tickled at how easy creme puffs were and make unbelievable brownies.
My cooking tragedies
Pan fried steak- it's either tough or raw or burned. =-(
