When it comes to cooking major meals or events I am the one the families turn to. I started cooking as a challenge to myself. I promised that I wouldn't use prepared foods to cook with. I prefer to cook from scratch whenever possible. I actually find it very relaxing and use it as a stress relief. Who knows maybe I'll go to school and learn how to really cook.
My favorite things to cook
Anything to that challenges me. I don't enjoy cooking an easy meal as much as a complex one.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having my kids learning to cook with me. My 10yo daughter is making her first pumpkin pie this year with just a watchful fatherly eye. We'll have to see how it goes.
