I have been married to the love of my life for the past (almost) 23 years and we have three young adult kids. I have always been a little on the creative side and that shows up in my cooking. I love to bake and cook and have been decorating cakes for many years too.
My favorite things to cook
I guess if I HAVE to chose something I would say I love to cook Mexican and Italian dishes most. I love the taste of these foods so preparing them is more fun. I also love to bake cakes, cookies, bars, anything dessert-like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember cooking a lot growing up. Don't really remember much traditional cooking but my mom taught me to cook and bake and I have passed that to my daughter and she is now quite good.
My cooking triumphs
I would say my best cooking triumph is when my husband brags, "Why go out to eat when I can get the best food on the island right at home!" That makes me feel pretty good.
My cooking tragedies
There was that one time when I tried to make rye bread with 100% rye flour. Bad idea!!! I didn't know at the time that rye flour by itself is unstable and makes a very dense loaf. Had to throw that one away!
