I'm a full time college student and a part time retail jockey. I don't get to cook as often as I'd like to, but when I do...Look Out! I go all out. I love to bring nontraditional goodies to parties with me.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking dessert. I love making cakes that aren't dry and desserts that seem hard, but are real easy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, definitely. My mom and I like to cook things together.
My cooking triumphs
Ok, don't laugh, I was extremely proud of myself the first time I cooked an egg over-easy and didn't break the yolk.
I also taught a friend from Alaska to make Baked Alaska.
My cooking tragedies
One year I made my mom's Chuck Wagon Beans, which are delicious, and took them to a family get together. No one would touch them. They thought it was a bean soup. Instead they ate my carrot cake that happened to be incredibly dry. So instead of tasting my GOOD food they ate the yucky stuff. Luckily they've learned I'm actually a good cook.
