I learned to cook from watching my mother. Made my first cake when I was 8 and it didn't turn out too bad.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta and sauces...usually tomato based. They make the house smell wonderful and taste awesome.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We all love food from scratch and usually try to make at least one dish over the weekend.
My cooking triumphs
I made a Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake from the Death by Chocolate cookbook. Took all day....and too many steps but it was wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Where do I begin? Most of the boxed stuff that you assemble and heat up isn't too tasty and usually gets thrown out.
