My favorite things to cook
My single most favorite thing to make is chocolate chip cookies. I used to make them almost everyday after high school for me and my brothers. I never used to feel like I was that great at anything but when my brutally honest brothers told me that "these are the best chocolate chip cookies ever" I believed them, it was an ego boost that tasted great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pumpkin pie. it's easy and quick to prepare and we only had it at holidays.
My cooking triumphs
It took me like six hours to make it. It was such a complex recipe. But everyone loved it. It wasn't too sweet, it was nice and light.
My cooking tragedies
Re-inventing leftovers. One nights spaghetti and meat sauce is the next night's chilli. Just add chilli powder and beans to the sauce, takes two minutes.
