I'm 30 years old and just moved to the US from Canada. Happily married. Have 3 pets.. 2 Blue and Gold Macaws (maple and Harley) and a Quaker (Oscar). Spend lots of time in the kitchen trying new recipes, both my husband and I are very adventurous when it comes to food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake just about anything...soups are a favorite, chicken dishes, and creative dishes that encourage my son to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas time baking...lots of variety, lots of fun, everyone helps mix, bake and taste. So much fun. Also, teaching my son to cook, like my parents taught me, as soon as I was old enough to hold a spoon.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph would have to be of course earning my catering/gourmet cooking diploma. As for actual recipes, I am great at pork tenderloin...soups and sauces. My biggest high is teaching someone else how to make something. OH, and making scottish shortbread that my Scottish decent husband actually approved of.
My cooking tragedies
It took me a long long time to perfect cheesecake....and many a brick of cream cheese was harmed in the process. But practice does make perfect, and now all my friends envy my cheesecake making ability.
