Ilove food, all types and cruisine and enjoy cooking. I live in the Bahamas (Nassau) family has alway enjoyed good eating so I became interested in cooking and baking at a very early age and spent lots of time in the kitchen helping my mother and grandmother. I cook or prepare 95% of what I eat (hardley ever eat out)so I'm always thinking up a meal or preparing a meal.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables are my favorite things to cook. There are so many to choose from and ways to prepare them are endless. Vegetables can be a main dish, side dish, soups added to meat, pasta, rice, whatever! , Beans (all), Potatoes, Broccoli, Cabbage and Squash are my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's favorite dishes - the ones that are a must at any family gathering is Broccoli casserole, Baked Macaroni & Cheese and Seafood. Good hearty soups are also big on our list.
My cooking triumphs
Well I'd have to say everything! My family and friends enjoy everything I fix. I've successfully converted many a non-veggie eaters. But my cakes and breads are probably most in demand - Christmas Fruit Cake, Banana Bread, Corn Bread
My cooking tragedies
In recent years, I've really not had any (yippee!) But I will never forget my first attempt at Peas 'n Rice (14rs old) it was a disaster. Too much much water was added! My folks said it tasted good though, just too soft. Which was good encouragement.
