Cooking is a real hobby for me. I guess you can say I'm a "foodie". I began cooking when I was 9 years old. The first thing that I made was some homemade biscuits. I didn't have enough flour to roll the dough with, so I used BAKING POWDER. Silly girl, I didn't know any better. They were horrible!!! But, today, I am a much better cook. I live to eat!
My favorite things to cook
I prefer to cook desserts; although I enjoy making savory dishes too. Novelty cakes is my specialty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions would be around the Thanksgiving Holidays; when all the ladies of the family get together and prepare our best dishes for the Thanksgiving feast.
My cooking triumphs
Thank heavens I have more triumphs now than boo boos. I have entered in competitions at the county fair. I have numerous ribbons, most of them 1st and 2nd place.
My cooking tragedies
I remember making a birthday cake for my daughter's friend's birthday party. As I was carrying the cake to her front door, I heard some of the items on the cake fall. I was MORTIFIED! You see, the cake was a 2 layer sheet cake with a chocolate pudding filling. There were 3D letters of her name that stood up on the cake. What I heard was the letters falling down and the cake split, the pudding oozed. So sad. HOWEVER, Everyone Loved the taste. I have some others but there isn't enough room to tell them all!
