Besides cooking, I love shopping, watching tv, going to movies and being with friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and making creative desserts without chocolate. I like chocolate but it's not one of my faves. I love exotic foods and lots of spice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum was from Dominica and made lots of West Indian food. Just the smell of her kitchen takes me back to when I was a little girl.
My cooking triumphs
The time I cooked for 50 people for my DH's family reunion. On my birthday. Everyone raving about my lemon birthday cake was gift enough that day.
My cooking tragedies
When I was little I made a chocolate cake from a mix. I wanted to frost it and didn't have the ingredients so I used chocolate pudding thinking it was a valid substitute. It promptly soaked into the cake and made a horrible mess. YUCK!
