I've been cooking, with mixed results, since I was about 11, when I took over preparing dinner at home. Baking is probably my forte, ironic since my first bread attempt was the correct taste, but would have served double duty as a doorstop!
My favorite things to cook
Sweet breads, casseroles to serve an army.
My cooking triumphs
The gingerbread I made at age 11 - my very hoity toity aunt asked what bakery my mom had purchased it from. The look on her face when she said I had made it from scratch was priceless.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, where to begin...
Probably the many, many failed bread attempts, until I discovered a refrigerator rise method in an ancient cookbook. Haven't had any issues since.
