I'm a Bilingual Resource Teacher in the Madison, Wisconsin school district. I love to cook, both following someone else's recipe and creating my own versions of favorite dishes. I think my favorite is making desserts--I learned to make tiramisu when I lived in Italy, I love to make cheesecake, pie, cakes, and cookies. Sharing ideas on recipes and techniques is the best!
My favorite things to cook
Dessert! And I like to make dinner for my family, and I don't mind shortcuts sometimes, as long as the results are good. But sometimes, it's just as easy to make from scratch and it almost always tastes better, so why not do it?
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook, they clean up!
My cooking triumphs
Tiramisu, corn casserole, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting.
My cooking tragedies
The time I made a chocolate cake and forgot the flour! My dearest mom ate it anyway, with vanilla ice cream, and said she liked it better that way! ARRGH!
