I first started cooking when I was in the second grade. My mother would leave me step-by-step directions for preparing a meal. Since then I have created my own recipes and continue to try others. I love the cooking school that is associated with allrecipes and continue to learn new things. I have passed down my love of cooking to my children.
My favorite things to cook
Anything and everything. I have even learned to cook...raw foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home canning is my most favorite family tradition. My mom and sisters and I...back when we lived closer would go to the farms and pick our own fruits and veggies when we didn't have gardens. I loved that time.
My cooking triumphs
Oreo cheese cake! The very first time I eve made cheese cake it turned out so well. It has been over 26 years since that time and I make an even better cheese cake now that I really know how to do it!
My cooking tragedies
I think my biggest tragedies have never made it to the table. I always have aloud myself time to remake anything I messed up. I have made cakes that have fallen. I have used salt in place of sugar. Don't have me how I did that.
