My favorite things to cook
Anything healthy and tasty- I love improvising my own recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Christmas my Mom makes an assortment of Christmas casseroles for breakfast, including a truly addictive coffee cake. I've started joining her in the kitchen, and though I hate knowing that I'm eating nothing but butter and sugar, I love being a part of it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a child I attempted to make grilled cheese sandwiches. I asked my dad how, and he described it to me as best as he could, but left me to my own devices. I misunderstood, and though I thought it was weird, I put them on the grill cheese-side down. Needless to say, they didn't turn out too well. The grill bore the outline of a piece of burned bread for years to come. Actually, it still bears the scar of that sandwich.
