My two favorite hobbies in the world are cooking and photography. I started cooking when I was in kindergarden (with the help of my mom of course), and I haven't stopped since. I love to impress people with my dishes and cook everything from quick and easy for weeknight dinners to gourmet dinners.

My favorite family cooking traditions is preparing Thanksgiving dinner. That's when I go all out.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph was a torte I made for my daughters christening. It was a very fance berry torte and I was told that I would never be able to pull it off (I was told the same thing the first year I tried the pink castle cake). Anyway, the torte turned out spectacular and I was so proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
My worst cooking experience was when my husband came home Christmas Day 2004 late in the evening after being away on a trip for several weeks. I wanted to surprise him with a great goulash, but I don't know what happened. It was totally burned and dry. I had nothing else in the house and since all the stores were closed, he had to eat it. I felt very embarrassed. By now we can laugh about it, but I have never tried to cook him goulash again.
