My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my specialty, though I will attempt virtually any recipe. Cookies, pies and cakes are my favorite!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge holiday meals, Filipino food on our family's birthdays, and more.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I make that my boyfriend enjoys!!! He absolutely loves the cinnamon rolls I make using the Clone-of-a-Cinnabon recipe, so those are a definite staple, along with the classic chocolate chip cookie, chocolate cake, and apple pie. In particular, I just made a coconut cake for a family get-together and everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
I once attempted to take a shortcut and make a pie crust with oil instead of shortening/butter, per a recipe on this site. It was probably the most god-awful thing I've ever made!
