I cook and bake for my family and friends. I love to try new techniques and kitchen gear.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook most all food. Mexican, Indian, Italian. Puerto Rican. Cajun. I like complicated recipes but also enjoy cooking quick meals. I don't have an absolute favorite thing to cook; I love all food for its unique qualities and enjoy cooking most foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I bake a birthday cake for each of my immediate relatives. Love holiday traditions: Christmas cookies and steamed plum pudding. Easter pies and antipasto. Deviled egg eyeballs and jello shots for Halloween. Thanksgiving stuffed mushrooms. I love all the family recipes that don't have measurements-- the ones that you cook by feel.
My cooking triumphs
Claypot cooking. Waterbath canning. Salt crust roast beef. Cupcake decorating. Layer cakes. Any new techniques that I conquer are triumphs.
My cooking tragedies
I can't fry an egg!
