I really enjoy looking up recipes on the internet. I am a ravenous reader of cookbooks and of course I watch Food TV religiously. I try to come up with new recipes to try.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook cheese tortellini with meat sauce, beef stroganoff, chili and mexican food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both of my parents were great cooks, but I think my dad taught me the most because he had so much patients. Some of the things that my dad liked to cook were quiches and baked chickens. He was also baked great Apple pies and Coconut cakes.
My cooking triumphs
I guess some of my triumphs have been that my chili has greatly improved over the years. I think my meat sauce is better now than ever.
My cooking tragedies
I do like to bake but I am not as comfortable in this category. I guess it is because you have to stay with exact measurement.
