I am married and trying to have a family. I have a degree in psychology and religious studies (go CATS!). I love to cook and bake, read and write, scrapbook, shop and hang out with friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, and am getting better. I like to cook lots of things, but I have to say I am a steak and potatoes kind of girl! My favorite foods other than those are raspberries and ice cream. My favorite drink is a margarita or white wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma can bake an applie pie like no one else. I would ask for a recipe, but she has done it so long she uses handfuls and pours for measurements! I am from the midwest, so I ate a lot of casserole type comfort foods growing up. My grandpa makes a mean "Charcoal Chicken" on the grill and my mom makes the best pot roast, ham and scalloped potatoes and rice pudding.
My cooking triumphs
I don't think I've hit a high point yet.
My cooking tragedies
Pies (again)! I made a cherry pie, but bought canned cherries and not pie filling. Couldn't salvage it. I also tried to make a pumpkin pie with cute leaves around the border. For some reason they didn't bake and the pie was awful. Same for my apple pie (sorry grandma)!
