I have cooked for family and in resturants for years. Don't consider myself a Chef, just a really good Cook
My favorite things to cook
What ever I'm in the mood for at the moment. I love to grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Candy for the Holidays. My Mom made candy and I guess I got her flair for it. Also any family get together.
My cooking triumphs
I guess it would be learning to cook for several hundred people at on time for special events. Getting it all to come together at once and getting it served hot and good is quite a triumph. Of course didn't d it alone, I had some good help.
My cooking tragedies
Not to many that I can think of. Te one that comes to muind is an old boyfriend of mine decided we should try German food. I know nothing about it. So we made saurbraten for his son's birthday and it really wasn't very good.
