I have been cooking since I was seven years old. I love to cook. My specialty is "stuff;" that's what my husband and son started calling meals that I didn't have names for. Because of a very wanting budget, this is what we ate many times. It was good practice for the catering business that I later started.
My favorite things to cook
I guess I'd have to say desserts. I became a cake artist, and many people love my cakes. Some recipes I have made up myself--such as one called Oklahoma Golden Nugget.
My cooking triumphs
A sit-down affair for the Tulsa Police Department. There were three hundred people that the room had to be setup for, cooked for, served, etc. Rave reviews.
My cooking tragedies
The same police function. I hired about thirty people to prepare and serve. Some--only some--were experienced people from Tulsa University--including their boss that pitched in as well. The boss wore a shirt with the TU logo on it, so the police representative that hired me thought that all I had done was cook, and that "TU" had done everything else. He would not listen when I tried to explain. I never got called by them again. I'm sure TU did. Sometimes 'friends' can be treacherous. Oh, well...lesson learned.
