When I was five I said "I want to grow up and get married and have babies"
That's all I ever wanted. Cooking for my family is enough!

My first job at age 16 was in the dietary department in a local hospital. I worked my way up to an assistant cook. When I was in my 20's I worked for a couple catering companies. Now, all my cooking is done at home for my family.

Never been a professional. I echo Andy's sentiments on that one.

Great? sometimes. Average? usually. Interested? always.

I always loved to cook and bake, but never did professionally. I love to cook for my family and friends. I also did the cooking and catering for big parties like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. but always just as a hobby.
Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are.

I enjoy sharing my results of my cooking with friends and family. To me one of the greatest compliments is to take a dish or dessert to a potluck, BBQ. or any other function and come home with it empty. I have cooked for larger groups (100+), mostly at work. I prefer to cook for smaller groups, it is more fun and less hassle.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

At the risk of being banished from here I do very little cooking anymore....I think I have done my duty thus far.I've put in for retirement. When DH comes home I will have to, but until then I just do what I want to as far as food goes.


May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
