My favorite things to cook
I can spend hours making gourmet food if necessary. I prefer simple comfort food. I love to bake and make dessert especially tweeking traditional recipes for different diets like sugar free or low fat and low sodium .
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned by being in the kitchen with my mother and grandmothers. I am working on compiling a family cook book . It is funny that the women on my mom's side of the family all have recipes on the back of their cup boards ;the same ones in the same places.
My cooking triumphs
I feel comfortable cooking almost anything . The thing I am most proud of is when I learned to decorate cakes .
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes I could not cook them for along time. I almost gave up but when I was a waitress talking with a cook she showed me what to look for and poof all is right.
