I love to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen. One of my favorite things about Allrecipes is collecting recipes for friends.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh baked bread. Anything roasted, braised, or set on the back of the stove simmering for hours. It all makes the house smell so good. And I love making pastries. Butter is soooo wonderful!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My son helps me make vanilla sugar each year, and of course lots of cookies. :)
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook traditional German food, and baking homemade bread for my husband. He missed the foods from his home town, and I love that I can give him those foods now.
