I have always loved to cook. I was the youngest in my family and always too little to do the things my brother and sister were doing so I spent a great deal of time helping my mom in the kitchen. I learned the basics from her and my appetite (ha, ha) for cooking grew from there. I read a lot of cook books and cooking magazines and watch the Food Network. I surf the web for new ideas everyday. I love to be in the kitchen and my boys love to help too. I think it is very important for kids to learn their way around a kitchen. I even entered my boys in the scholastic cooking club. Every month they get a new cook book and a few kitchen tools of their own. They have their own drawer in the kitchen to store their supplies. I am a Medical Assistant but always wanted to pursue a career in culinary arts. Someday I'd like to open my own B&B. I secretly like to write nonsense and do it here http://kiwimoncur.blogspot.com/
My favorite things to cook
Roast beef and mashers,
chocolate chip cookies,
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Dad and I make awesome sourdough, sweet rolls for Christmas breakfast. I also enjoy making Christmas breakfast with my in-laws. We cook everything outside on the bbq grill. There's nothing quite like the smell of hot breakfast in the cold morning air.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate silk pie,
Oooey gooey cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting,

My cooking tragedies
