I'm 26, content, and happily married to my hero. I love to cook and host in my home because it is such a wonderful way to serve people.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake, tiramisu, cake, pie...pretty much all the worst stuff you can eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Working in the garden and canning with my mennonite mom-in-law.
My cooking triumphs
I've become relatively well known for my pumpkin pie and tiramisu. My husband would probably tell you that everything I make is a triumph, but he's remarkably easy to please so I wouldn't take his word for it. :)
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a good lemon meringue pie to save my life. It always tastes great but it weeps terribly, and after sitting in the fridge for even a day the pastry is practically swimming. No matter what I've tried, I haven't been able to fix it.
