Professor of Mathematics, amateur cook, yummy cookie baker.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies and cakes. More out of necessity, because my wife tells me we can't live on cookies, I also enjoy making some normal dishes, pastas, meatloaf, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love creme puffs, but I don't yet know how to make them.
My cooking triumphs
A 1-2-3-4 cake. Even though the recipe is fairly easy, the cake dries out really fast if you overcook it. After three tries, I finally got it.
My cooking tragedies
Egg nog when I was 16 years old. I used all of my mothers eggs and the nog was terrible. It was probably the recipe. lol
