I love cooking for crowds and I love eating!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking items that make people smile. I'm not too fond of eating chocolate (unless it's dark chocolate) just because of how sweet some desserts can be (I love salty foods), but I love baking and cooking with chocolate because I know it pleases so many people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Back home our state tree is the Pecan Tree. I just loved the time of year when the pecans would begin to fall from the tree. As a family, extended family too, we'd go out into my grandmothers yard, pick pecans and then we'd assemble lines to crack, shell and bag the pecans. I love this memory!
My cooking triumphs
Tamles has been my most recent triumph. Next on my list is a souffle. This may not seem like much to many, but I like to conquer the dishes that seem most intimidating to me.
My cooking tragedies
Well, when I about 10 I wanted to make homemade onions rings. I was following the directions for the batter and once I had finished with that I asked my older brother to test-taste for me. I didn't understand why he was gagging. Then I realize that instead of 3/4 tsp. of salt I had added 3/4 cup of salt!! *BLEGH*
