Most of recipes I use come from the internet and a few cookbooks. Then I adapt and have fun with it. Give me an ingredient and I'll make something scrumptious.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking a lot more than cooking. Not that I like eating sweets, I just enjoy decorating. I'm in a cupcake zone at the moment. Check out my Baking Therapy album on facebook, look up 'venusfb'.
My cooking triumphs
I love cooking from scratch. Really enjoy cooking Asian/Middle Eastern food as well as Italian and other comfort European dishes.
My cooking tragedies
Ahhh...it started with Betty Crocker...then several baking attempts from scratch that ended up in the trash. After living in Africa where I cannot buy any box ingredients, I emerged a decent cook/baker.
