I grew up as the only girl in the family for many generations and was thereby spoiled rotten. I was never allowed in the kitchen for any reason so didn't learn to cook OR clean until after I married. (At 18 yrs old - 32 years ago)
I lived in Oregon then and learned to cook by watching KOIN Kitchen on TV. Everyday, whatever was prepared on the program, I cooked for my husband's dinner that night. (Even If they made nothing but desserts) :)
After two years of watching cooking shows, studying cookbooks, and nutritional guides - I learned to cook. Today I pride myself on my cooking and baking expertice! It's my passion, however I never developed that same passion for clean up! YUCK - but I do love a spotlessly clean kitchen - it's just like a blank canvas for me to create on. I just wish I had a maid!
Although my best friend Janna and I are a great team, she loves to clean up and I live to cook.
I can't say I have a favorite dish because that can change with the weather.
I do love to bake breads and make desserts - but really not one thing is my fav. My children say that they never got to have a favorite dish growing up because I never cooked the same thing twice. (Not exactly true - but I certainly did my best not to let meals get boring) Since I loved to cook so much, we seldom eat out and now my boys hate eating in restaurants and my daughters-in-law would love to wring my neck!
