I liked cooking not every day but I felt competent at it. I did all the cooking through my first marriage which spanned about eight years or so. I was then a single mom for another two years before marrying Scotto. Scott’s parents owned a corner market in San Francisco before moving to the suburbs, where Scott was born. In the suburbs, they owned and ran a little grocery store nestled in a little shopping center in the little subdivision known as “Fiesta Gardens”. Scott’s dad let Scott order the candy and had him stock shelves and other jobs. As a result, Scott loves markets and cooking. His first employer after college was working for a Spice company and there he became even more interested in food and cooking. On our 2nd date, Scott asked if I would mind if we stopped at a supermarket to pick up some produce. From the get go, Scott did and still does all the food shopping. Eventually, he decided to do most of the cooking. Now, we have moved and been here for a few years, I still don’t know where he keeps anything.
Turning back to today’s prompt, my favorite meal (meal?) to prepare is DESSERT. In college, I was the dessert chef at a crepe place and would arrive at 7AM to crack open dozens of eggs and make lbs of whipped cream. Around 20 years ago, I won a competition for creating a vegan dessert with Hot Sauce! My recipe was published in Chili Pepper Magazine. I know that I mentioned my cookie decorating career somewhere in one of these blogs. I decorated cookies professionally for a cookie company. I am just making sure whoever is reading this understands, I have skills. So I have a photo presentation of some stuff I have created for the sake of dessert.
So, those are the cakes, there is so much more and if you’re a regular blog reader here, I have my Chocolate Ice recipe somewhere in a Summer blog.
Thanks for reading!
