I love cooking for other people, but often get lazy when I'm cooking for just myself. I love trying new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Pie, enchiladas, cheesecake, crockpot meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any traditions, since my mom doesn't enjoy cooking very much. So, I'm making up my own along the way.
My cooking triumphs
Making 'Tres Leche Cake' after my parents told me about how much they enjoyed it at a restaurant. They said that it was just as good... and my mom forbid me from making it because she enjoys it too much.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping a just-baked cheesecake with a crushed cookie crust into the crack of my oven door as I was leaving for a friend's wedding. I ate some off the door with a fork and had to leave the rest there until I got home from the wedding.
