I daydream of baking...
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, and quick breads are my favorites, but I try not to discriminate!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge, noisy, crowded Thanksgiving and Christimas dinners filled with delicious food and family
My cooking triumphs
My father, who is an absolute cookie snob ("The cookie has to been flat but chewy, no chocolate chips but lots of nuts, and not too sweet...")amazingly approved of a cookie recipe that I created..ah, one of life's biggest challenges...
My cooking tragedies
I'm a klutz...Catching oven-mitts on fire, cookbooks on fire, pork roasts on fire, dropping a pie while taking it out of the oven, licking the spoon that I used seconds beforehand to stir the homemade caramel I was making (stupid, stupid girl...I have no will power and clearly, no common sense) and the list goes on and will undoubtedly continue:)
