I decorate cakes for a living and then come home and cook awesome dinners! I love food. :)
My favorite things to cook
Fried chicken, quiche, spaghetti sauce
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition we really had was making cookies around Christmas. My mom, brother and I would all get together and make a bunch of different kinds of cookies to take to the family gathering. When my brother and I were teenagers my mom let us do it alone one year and we made anatomically correct gingerbread men. LOL Those went on the adult table to say the least.
My cooking triumphs
I was making sauce one day for dinner when my boyfriend came home. He said he thought it smelled amazing when he walked in the building and then he discovered it was coming from his apartment! I think I got a nice necklace shortly after that... :)
My cooking tragedies
Oh, lots. I made so many mistakes when I was learning how to cook. I think the most embarrassing was the first time I tried to make ribs. I grossly underestimated how long it would take to cook them and ended up serving mostly raw ribs to company! I put them back in the oven while we ate side dishes and I ended up eating the ribs the next day. So embarrassing!
