I'm slowly losing my sweet tooth and I'm pretty sad about that because I love to bake. We moved to Seattle 6 months ago and I'm really digging that I can find just about every ingredient my heart desires.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and lately have found joy in making bread and jellies. I also love all the work that goes into preparing a meal, the more I have to chop and mince, the better. People are always looking for some special tool to help them out but a little extra work can only make the meal tastier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At christmas my father-in-law makes a boneless rib roast that is out of this world! They also make scrapple which is one of the best things I've ever eaten.
My cooking triumphs
I made a pecan pie that I took over to a girlfriend's house and one of the girl's there said it was the best pecan pie she had ever had, and she said she never had one as good living down south.
My cooking tragedies
When I find a new recipe that I think sounds delicious and is anything but delicious.
