Just a person who loves to bake, cook and create new masterpieces eveyday. The kitchen is like therapy to me!
My favorite things to cook
Can you tell I love my desserts. Cookies, cakes, pies, cream puffs..all from scratch and these are my specialties.
Second runners up would be chicken dishes, cream sauces, italian pasta dishes, and anything that has to do with a Thanksgiving feast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving for years now- my father comes over bright and early in the morning to stuff the turkey and make all the fixings. I learned years ago what to do myself..but it wouldn't be the same without him here guiding me and helping me. Together we create a 10 course Thanksgiving feast for our entire family.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say that cookies are my calling in life. Every time someone has a cookie of mine- they rant and rave and ask for a batch of their own. The down side is I can never ever show up at a function without cookies-I would be killed.
I put my heart into whatever I make and when I hear all the rave reviews when it's eaten- I just love it!
My cooking tragedies
In all my years of cooking-my husband still makes reference back to a chicken teriyaki I completely messed up in my early days of cooking. I don't know what I did but it didn't taste pretty. Other than that I have had a good knack at fixing a dish gone bad.
