Work hard, play harder, cook hardest! That's my motto.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that my grandmother taught me how to cook, espically Pineapple Cake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Learning from my grandmother how to make cornbread dressing for the holidays. We always work as a team in the kitchen and the family is always happy and our home smells great!
My cooking triumphs
New Year's Day 2006. I made an entire dinner for my BF using all of Grandmother's recipes (from memory!!). He loved every bit of it!
My cooking tragedies
I was working in Star City, Russia, and tried to bake a cake from scratch (no cake mix here). A major lack of basic ingredients resulted in a horribly pasty, floury, too sweet, flat mess that was brought to the group dinner just so we could all have a great laugh!
