Well I love to cook. I grew up with my mom's cooking and it kind of stuck with me. I think it's very true that cooking and food bring people together. When the company is good and the food is good, it's all good.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with spices. I love flavorful food, and think that garlic should be in almost everything from pasta to eggs. I like things spicy but not overwellming. I also love to make up quick recipes that are quick, simple and easy, yet they still have a very gourmet flavor and feel to them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday morning breakfast...eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, pancakes, you name it we had it growing up, and now I make breakfast on the weekends for my fiance.
My cooking triumphs
Any time that I try a new recipe that is challenging and it all comes togethers. I think that best triumph is by far when someone gives you a genuine complement about your cooking.
My cooking tragedies
I wouldn't say I have ever had a tragedy, some recipes just turn out better than others.
