I'm not very interesting, but I will say that I enjoy cooking and baking when I have the time; at the moment, I am mostly trying to improve my techniques and discover new, healthier versions of old favorites.
My favorite things to cook
I especially enjoy baking, so that means cookies, cakes, breads, etc. I also enjoy slow-cooking and making main dishes, but usually I need to look at others' recipes for those!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is Danish and grew up in america during the depression. As a result, many of my favorites and some of our traditions are based around these foods. For good measure, my husband is Dutch, so I am learning to incorporate more from that region/culture as well.
My cooking triumphs
Any moist and flavourful cake/bread I have made. My favorites lean toward bran muffins and oatmeal cookies; other family members prefer chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookies.
My cooking tragedies
I have yet to successfully make fudge with marshmallow creme. Oy.
