I love to cook, especially for a big crowd. I have trouble making small meals. I see recipes as a guidline, and my cooking style is pretty much a free for all.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic cooking. I'm a Heinz 57 myself, so trying recipes from different cultures makes me happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything, really. Life's too short, just have fun.
My cooking triumphs
I am a master baker and cake decorator. I love trying new things. I can patiently spend eight hours mastering new techniques. And I'm the first one my friends call when they need desserts. Ironically, I don't like cake.
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much anything that involves worcestershire sauce. It's vile. Also, I don't do anything that lives in water. Not for lack of trying to like it, but yuck.
