I am a southern girl from Tennessee that now lives in a foreign country. I am always looking for really yummy recipes that have easy-to-find ingredients!
My favorite things to cook
I love making any kind of dessert or breakfast food, those are sort of my specialties. When cooking main courses I stick to grilled, healthy chicken, I don't ever bake anything fried. I love making brownies because they are so easy and white chocolate chip cookies because my family loves them, but nothing compares to the thrill I get when making something completely NEW!
My favorite family cooking traditions
About twice a year we make fondue. I make the cheese sauce, my sister makes the chocolate sauce, and we all cut up the fruit and the bread. It is amazing!
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say lemon bars. I had to hand squeeze about 7 lemons and do it all from scratch, but it was worth it in the end!
My cooking tragedies
Probably when I confused sugar with salt. I ended up with 46 VERY salty cupcakes. Whoops!
