I've been cooking family meals since I was 14 years old. I enjoy cooking and experimenting with recipes and I love using the allrecipes site. It is a life saver when it comes to finding a great recipe. The reviews are always helpful to me in deciding how to make a certain dish. Thank you all for your efforts in making this a great online community.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making main dishes, appetizers, and desserts. I am also interested in learning more about making anything that can be made ahead, frozen, and reheated as if you just made it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a German background and our family traditions include strudela, kase knapla, nut pudding, kuchen, etc.
My cooking triumphs
I always manage to find people to "try out" my latest recipes on regardless of last weeks failure....
My cooking tragedies
Burnt and overcooked meat! I like it well done and sometimes I get carried away.
