I love baking and think I have good instincts when it comes to flavor and presentation, but I would like to learn more about basic food techniques.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and comfort foods like pasta, steak, chicken, vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Taking whatever we have in the fridge and trying to make something great from it.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking thanksgiving dinner for the first time a few years ago- turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mac n' cheese, and pumpkin pie! Nothing makes you feel like king of the world than serving a huge turkey to your entire family!
My cooking tragedies
Starting out when I was in the 4th grade, I was left to my own devices when trying to follow recipes and did not have ANY real cooking tools/wares. Use your imagination... too many disasters to list!
