I love to cook! It's all about flavor for me. If the flavor isn't right, what's the use in eating it?!! When I cook for dinner guests, I want them to feel like they are being treated to something special. Not that it's all that fancy, just made with attention and the love that I have for them and for cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving!!!!! We all bring a dish. It's all good!!
My cooking triumphs
A triumph for me is whenever I cook for others and they love what I cook. People ask for my baked goods and are excited when I bring them to get-togethers. My husband thinks I'm the best cook there is -- that is a triumph for me!
My cooking tragedies
Let's see: cake for bake off broke when I removed it from the pan (I still won!!). Dry Thanksgiving turkey!
