I have always loved cooking and baking ever since I can remember. I grew up out in the country and the only grocery store was an hour away. We bought everything in bulk and grew a lot of vegetables in the garden and our house was always full of baking, my mom made all our bread and cookies and snacks from scratch and made wonderful meals with wild moose and deer. It taught me to appreciate home cooking and baking and I honestly just don't like most ready made foods, I will always choose to make it myself.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking! I could spend all day baking everything from squares to cookies to pies... The only wish is that I had more occasions to bake for others so that I don't have to eat it all ;p
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any holiday baking with my Mom. Easter was all about making hot crossed buns and it was my job to snip the crosses in and ice them all. Christmas was about lots and lots of gingerbread cookies, a never ending stream of cutting out shapes and then decorating! By the 150th cookie the last thing you want to see is any more frosting, haha.
My cooking triumphs
I made some chicken noodle soup once when I was really sick and man was it good soup.... Haha, I'm serious, it was sooo super good.
My cooking tragedies
Well I have a terrible short term memory and more than one trays of cookies and loaves of bread have fallen victim to me forgetting to set the timer and then getting distracted and leaving...
