I learned to cook some simple dishes when I was about six years old. My great-aunt supervised from a safe distance. (Don't ask how long ago that was!)
I consider myself an intermediate cook, because, while I could probably manage the gourmet level, I just don't have the time or motivation.
My favorite things to cook
Anybody want some tomatoes and zucchini?
My favorite family cooking traditions
BBQ with my sister and brothers.
My cooking triumphs
Best ever was the cake decorated to look like a Siamese cat.
My cooking tragedies
I never get rice right.
