My passion for cooking started late in life, about 3 years ago. I went a year without being able to cook my own food, and I think that sparked it. Now I am a whiz at following recipes and making food many enjoy, which is always satisfying. And I have also been experimenting with my own recipes. I would like to start tackling more difficult recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Asian, BBQ, cakes, cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals, grillin' out, comfort food
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my chili recipe. Making roast beef for a party of 8, creating a frying pan quiche...delicious!
My cooking tragedies
There were a lot when I first started out. I could boil water and that's about it.
